For 2018 the journal is exclusively digital, but completely revised and expanded. Available from the app store on Apple and Android devices, the journal is free to download today.

The Three Practices
To journal is to live more mindfully, more aware of God’s movements and promptings in our lives. Journalling is the practice of paying attention: listening, sorting, discerning, and remembering.
We recommend three simple journalling practices in regards to our Sunday teaching:
The first practice is basic: As you listen to the teaching, note anything that strikes you as important, anything that ought to be remembered and preserved.
The second practice is that of “reverse note-taking”: This is the art of listening to what is taking place in your own soul. Ask yourself, “What is being stirred up in me while I listen to this teaching?” Perhaps you will be reminded of something you once knew but have forgotten, or something you were meant to do but have left unattended.
The third practice is pragmatic: Move your hearing into action pieces. Note a Scripture text you want to reflect on, a practice you should consider, a person you might call (or forgive, or help). The Scriptures tell us that we are blessed when we not only hear God’s word, but do it. Finding a way to work the words of God into the fabric of our daily living is actually the way we become disciples of Jesus.
So the journal is our invitation to you to allow our teaching to stretch beyond Sunday and for Scriptures to move off the page and guide your everyday life.
