Spring Study

For the spring of 2019, our Growth Groups will be looking at Spiritual Disciplines like prayer and fasting.  The Book we will investigate is Richard Foster’s Celebration of Discipline.  A description of the book from https://renovare.org/books/celebration-of-discipline hailed by many as the best modern book on Christian spirituality, Celebration of Discipline explores the ”classic Disciplines,” or central spiritual practices, of the Christian faith. Along the way, Foster shows that it is only by and through these practices that the true path to spiritual growth can be found… The inward Disciplines of meditation, prayer, fasting, and study, offer avenues of personal examination and change. The outward Disciplines of simplicity, solitude, submission, and service, help prepare us to make the world a better place. The corporate Disciplines of confession, worship, guidance, and celebration, bring us nearer to one another and to God.
