We all feel it at some point—
the sense of being fractured, disconnected from God and others, anxious, overwhelmed. The ancient remedy is stability, a Benedictine value rooted in a deep commitment to a people, a place, and a purpose.
This Lent, explore the rich and life-giving practice of stability with your family, small group, or church. Join us for an engaging series of Lenten talks and delve into pastor Nathan Oates’ new book, Stability: How an Ancient Monastic Practice can Restore Our Relationships, Churches and Communities. We’ve put together some additional resources and tools to aid your journey.

About the Book
As Christians in a hypermobile culture, most of the time we talk about going and doing, about the need for meaningful action, service, and pilgrimage.
Here, we listen to a quieter call. We consider the foundation, the roots, the bass note, that place of origin from which the building rises and the fruit blooms and the music soars and all the action comes—the place of stability. This call is rooted in the being of God.
Drawing on the wisdom of Benedict and his personal experiences living with monks, Nathan Oates explores what stability can mean for all of us right now, in our families, churches, and communities. Countercultural and filled with hope, this book helps us to discover how embracing stability is the path to healing and restoration.
