Joy of Discipline
The Joy of Discipline: Discovering intimacy with God through inward spiritual practices
Led by Rev. Thomas Harper
Sundays, January 20 - February 24, 4-5:30 p.m., Room ES301
Often times when we think of Spiritual Disciplines we think of legalism or fundamentalism. Images of Pharisees imposing harsh laws they that themselves have no intention of following fill our minds. But what if I told you that a disciplined life that is not forced on you by others but entered into prayerfully with God will actually lead to a more balanced and joyful life? Richard Foster in his book “The Celebration of Discipline” shows us that spiritual disciplines are a doorway to freedom from our slavery to self-interest and fear. If you desire more intimacy with God and the life giving practices that the church has looked to for means of grace for centuries. Or if you could benefit from more balance in the New Year then join us for six weeks as we study, explore, and practice four inward disciplines. Not so that you will become a better Christian or to make God love you more, but so that you may know the joy and freedom of a more balanced life and closer relationship with our creator..
