We studied this topic of spiritual disciplines as a church about a year ago. But we're excited to revisit this topic again since it continues to be such a pressing subject in our church body. We'll plan to cover some spiritual disciples we didnt last time, such as rest, discipleship, and confession. The series will run May 15th - June 19th.
We recommend grabbing a copy of "The Spirit of the Disciplines" by Dallas Willard as a companion resource to this series. We'll have it available at the Resource Table and at The Greenhouse for $10.

This first and foundational message of the "Reclaiming Spiritual Disciplines ... Again" sermon series focuses on God's words to us: how they are always for our good and ideal for human flourishing. As we dive into reclaiming spiritual disciplines, we need to reclaim this bedrock of human flourishing lost in the garden. So as we listen to and obey God's words, as we engage in spiritual disciplines, we must remember that it is all out of love and for our good -- and will lead to the best version of us and our lives now.
