Spiritual Disciplines

Each month we profile a different Spiritual Discipline, All of them have value and some are more central to a healthy spiritual life than others. Some personalities etc will gain greater benefit from certain practices however we would strongly encourage you to give each a go. You will not know until you try.


“God does not need our disciplines in order to find us.
We need discipline in order to bring some structure
to our intent to open ourselves to God – alone and together.
Our desire and intent is what we bring, and God does the rest.” 

Ruth Haley Barton, Pursuing God’s Will Together

The encouragement is to “Start small—start slow”. We will be profiling and promoting these disciplines via the Chapel Chat and the Chapel website, in Sunday gatherings etc. Our prayer is that, over time, these would increasingly become a natural and profoundly beneficial part of the rhythm of life for all who call The Chapel home.

If you have anything to share from your experience with, your practice of any of the Spiritual Disciplines, I (Brian) would love to hear. Your story may just be the encouragement that someone else needs. Please click here to email me.
