Baptist Doctrine Study 2010 Looks At Spiritual Disciplines

I wanted to give you a heads up on the Baptist Doctrine Study for 2010 entitled Soul Shaping: Disciplines That Conform You to the Image of Christ. As evidenced by its title, this new study explores spiritual disciplines.

From modernity’s typically linear perspective, spiritual disciplines are a to-do list with a formula: do these things and you will develop and mature. The downside is that formulas can become mechanical and regimented to the point of missing the purpose. But this study encourages believers to experiment with multiple spiritual disciplines and to develop an appreciation for and balance of each.

This study features the following 6 sessions:
From Doing to Living
From Neediness to Intimacy
From Busyness to Focus
From Despair to Hope
From Isolation to Connection
From Entitlement to Service

Learning activities and Leader Guide are also included.

Until next time...share the journey and enjoy the ride!
