Quiet Pools encourages, equips and facilitates contemplative opportunities for women to encounter God through the spiritual disciplines, scriptural practices and godly habits of the heart.
Our scriptural theme Psalm 23 that says, “The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not be in want. He makes me to lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside the quiet waters, he restores my soul.” Soul restoration often comes when we let the Lord lead us to those still and quiet places where we can delight in him and enjoy his rest.
“Discipline in the spiritual life is the concentrated effort to create the space and time where God can become our master and where we can respond freely to God’s guidance. Thus, discipline is the creation of boundaries that keep time and space open for God. Solitude requires discipline, worship requires discipline, caring for others requires discipline. They all ask us to set apart a time and a place where God’s gracious presence can be acknowledged and responded to.” Henri Nouwen
Quiet Pools is a cross-denominational ministry that is Bible-based, God-honouring, Christ centered and Holy Spirit guided. In addition we value resources from authors such as A.W. Tozer, Richard Foster, Ruth Haley Barton, Dallas Willard, Mark Buchanan, Henri Nouwen, Pete Scazzero to name a few, as well as from monastic communities and Christian prayer communities throughout the ages.
Important: What Quiet Pools is Not – Quiet Pools is not a Bible study, revival meeting, prayer meeting, intercession group, personal prayer ministry, counseling ministry, healing ministry or support group.
