Finding freedom in Jesus is so transformative it can only be described as being born again—but it's just the beginning. Everyone who belongs to Jesus is invited to become like Jesus. In this series we'll learn to practice the ways and rhythms of Jesus in the form of classical spiritual disciplines. We'll learn to position ourselves daily before God for the purpose of encounter, spiritual formation, and becoming like the One we follow.
Spiritual Disciplines WEEKLY Calendar
This weekly calendar is designed to help you bring the Spiritual Disciplines into your whole life. This isn’t an exhaustive list of every spiritual discipline, but rather meant to give you a framework for you to build upon. We encourage you to continue finding and implementing new spiritual disciplines in the days to come. As you cultivate habits, these things will turn from something you “should do more” to practices you love and relish. Theories shape our ideas about life, but habits shape us from the inside out.
This resource corresponds with many of the Spiritual Disciplines highlighted in this sermon series. The sermons explain several disciplines in depth, so they are a helpful resource when using this calendar.
