Spiritual Practices

"Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight and the sin that clings so closely, and let us run with perseverance the race that is set before us, looking to Jesus the pioneer and perfecter of our faith, who for the sake of the joy that was set before him endured the cross, disregarding its shame, and has taken his seat at the right hand of the throne of God." Hebrews 12:1-2

What is the role of spiritual practices in the life of a Christian disciple? We are going to start out by looking at the twelve practices from the spiritual classic A Celebration of Discipline by Richard Foster - check out the website he founded, coming out of his work: renovare.org

6. Solitude
7. Submission
8. Service
