What do we miss when we’re focused on the past or on the future instead of the present moment we’ve been given?
It’s something we probably have all thought about. How to be present. How to enjoy each moment.
We dive into why the present moment is so important and how to begin to cultivate it with special guest, Dr. Terry Wardle.
We also learn:
- Why the present moment is truly a gift and what we lose when we are pulled to the past or future
- What Jesus was talking about when he told Martha that “Mary has chosen what is better” at the end of the Gospel of Luke 10.
Dr. Terry Wardle is Professor of Practical Theology at Ashland Theological Seminary, founding President of Healing Care Ministries, and President Emeritus of HCM International’s Board of Directors. He is a frequent seminar and conference speaker, and the author of numerous books on spiritual formation and formational prayer. He has been married to Cheryl for more than 42 years, has three grown children and five grandchildren.
