Book

On Our Way


Christian Practices for Living a Whole Life. On Our Way looks at common subjects in fresh, meaningful ways. It presents “study,” for example, as “not synonymous with reading books or with academic reflection, though it may well include these.” Instead, this essay explains study as “a particular kind of attending to Christ and the world, a particular stance of curiosity, vigilance, and openness to learning—an openness that extends even to unlearning what we have previously learned to take for granted.” Other chapters explore such subjects as discerning God’s call, friendship and intimacy, care for creation, knowing and loving our neighbors of other faiths, and doing justice. By Dorothy C. Bass & Susan R. Briehl.

Book

Foundations

Per Week

An Introduction to Christian Practices. Growth as a disciple begins with a good foundation. We need to learn how to pray, how to begin reading the Bible, how to live in authentic relationships, how to have a devotional time, how to use the resources God has provided, how to discern our call to serve, and how to share our faith. These basic foundational spiritual disciplines are presented in an easy to understand and very practical format in "Foundations". Use this resource with a small group of new believers or with a new member class or as a guide in a mentoring relationship. Even seasoned believers are finding this to be a valuable resource to strengthen their spiritual lives.
