How to abide in Christ with Russ Jones
In this episode I get the privilege of speaking with Russ Jones, the Executive Producer, Abide Bible Story and Sleep App. Abide Meditation is a project of Carpenters Code, a small startup located in San Mateo, California. It was started by former Google employees seeking to use their gifts to help bring people closer to God. The Abide mobile app is the world’s most popular Christian Bible story and sleep app, guiding hundreds of thousands of people around the world in biblical truth and personal reflection.
Russ talks about how, with our phones on our hips we are available and we are plugged in too much. Russ and the team at Abide’s mission is to redeem technology with the abide app. Russ debunks the myth that meditation is New-Age. Meditation is in the bible and God along with prayer. Russ discusses the difference between the two and encourages us to do both!
