Media @ New Hope CalgaryHow is your spiritual health? Are you engaging in any spiritual disciplines? Do the words "spiritual disciplines" cause a bit of apprehension? In this sermon Pastor Cari helps us sort out why we should engage in spiritual disciplines and their benefits.

“The life that is pleasing to God is not a series of religious duties. We have only one thing to do, namely, to experience a life of relationship and intimacy with God.”
Richard Foster, Celebration of Discipline

“As the deer pants for streams of water, so my soul pants for you, my God.  My soul thirsts for God, for the living God. When can I go and meet with God?”
Psalm 42:1-2 (NIV)

“We must not be led to believe that the Disciplines are only for spiritual giants and hence beyond our reach, or only for contemplatives who devote their time to prayer and meditation. Far from it. God intends the Disciplines of the spiritual life to be for ordinary human beings: people who have jobs, who care for children, who wash dishes and mow lawns. In fact, Disciplines are best exercised in the midst of our relationships with our husband or wife, our brothers and sisters, our friends and neighbours.”
Richard Foster, Celebration of Discipline

“For God did not give us a Spirit of fear but of power and love and self-control.”
2 Timothy 1:7 (NIV)
