Corporate Spiritual Disciplines



$ 14.99
Spiritual practices are often thought to be so private and individual that they don?t have anything to do with the church gathered, says Mindy Caliguire in our interview with her. "But we can intentionally show up for God in interpersonal or large-group settings as well. And a church can do a great deal to equip people for the disciplines."

This 19-page resource can help you think about where your church is already practicing disciplines corporately, and where you could grow, from things as intangible as an attitude of simplicity to ideas as concrete as a 24-hour prayer vigil.
