For three weeks, our Suburban Bootcamp helps you take the big ideas of secularism and connect the dots to your everyday, holy life. How do we live ordinary lives well in a secular age? Here’s some practical places to start.
Bryce Hales (church planter at Resurrection Orange County) and Ashley Hales talk about freedom and secularism, how social media changes us, and how secularism affects those of us who live in suburbs and live rather ordinary lives. We talk about secularism of the right, give you some resources, and help you connect the dots between secularism and your phone. Listen in, share and subscribe!

ONE SMALL STEP
Practice pausing in the middle of your day to remind yourself that you’re in God’s presence. We’re often not aware that we are always in God’s presence. Put an alarm on your phone or put a bright orange sticky note on your bathroom mirror to practice pausing during your day.
Read a Psalm. Move your body in a different way — sit down or stand up, kneel or go for a walk. Practice one small step to connect with the grander story of the gospel instead of the story of hurry and hustle.
Let us know how it goes: tag me at @aahales or use the hashtag #findingholypodcast to tell us about it.
