Spiritual Formation & Spiritual Disciplines

June 1, 2021

What is Spiritual Formation? It's a movement started 40 years ago with by Richard Foster, author of Celebration of Discipline: The path to spiritual growth.

The movement appealed to many churches a decade ago, and is now experiencing a resurgence as more churches embrace this model. Amy and Michelle discusses how Spiritual Formation has some unbiblical practices, unbiblical origins, an unbiblical view of man’s human condition, and the risk of having spiritual experiences that are not from God.
