    Hollywood to Holy Orders Hollywood to Holy Orders Presentation Transcript

    • From Hollywood to Holy Orders St. Luke's, Sunday 7th May
    • "Elvis is a young man with an enormous capacity of love... but I don't think he has found his happiness. I think he is terribly lonely".
    • "Before I was twenty, I learned that being in movies didn't bring me the ultimate joy I expected."
    • “People think that it is a life that is shut off, or you’re gone from the world, but it’s exactly opposite. You are more embedded into the world. It’s a way of love that includes everyone that you’ve ever loved.’’
    • “I never considered my decision as “walking away from Hollywood,” I felt it was more — walking into something more significant and by that, I took Hollywood with me. I really loved my work and the people I worked with.
    • “Stand at the crossroads and look; ask for the ancient paths, ask where the good way is, and walk in it, and you will find rest for your souls.” Jeremiah 6:16
    • Matthew 6:22-23 “The eye is the lamp of the body. If your eyes are healthy, your whole body will be full of light. But if your eyes are unhealthy, your whole body will be full of darkness.”
    • Psalm 119:164 Seven times a day I praise you for your righteous.
    • Acts 3v1 One day Peter and John were going up to the temple at the time of prayer—at three in the afternoon.
    • Acts 10:9 About noon the following day as they were on their journey and approaching the city, Peter went up on the roof to pray.
    • Spiritual disciplines form character, awaken us to life, and help us to experience God, and each other, in new and fresh ways. Brian McLaren
    • Make time for prayer throughout the day – make regular appointments to pray!
    • Make generosity normal and habitual so it is done automatically.
    • Practice living simply and with as few possessions as you can.
    • Make regular time for rest every single week whether you feel you need it or not.
    • Most of the truly important skills we learn in life come through tradition, practice or community.
    • “People think that it is a life that is shut off…, but it’s exactly opposite. You are more embedded into the world. It’s a way of love.’’
    • "I have struggled with this call to vocation all my life," she says. "I can understand why people have doubts, because who understands God? I don't. When you are dealing with something at this level, you are dealing with mystery."
    • “Stand at the crossroads and look; ask for the ancient paths, ask where the good way is, and walk in it, and you will find rest for your souls. But you said, ‘We will not walk in it.” Jeremiah 6:16
    • “When the Church, the community of faith, realises it has lost its way, it begins moving forward by looking back. Brian McLaren
    • A believer, first thing in the morning splashes his or her face with cold water three times and says, Let me awaken to you, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
