The Corporate Disciplines – Doing Life Together

January 24, 2011

As we enter our last week of study on the Spiritual Disciplines, we look at those that involve the Body.   These last Disciplines are certainly to be practiced privately but they are also to be shared practices.

 

Why does it matter if we practice these Disciplines in the collective?  What difference does it make? This week we will explore Confession, Worship, Guidance, and Celebration … visible, audible, hands-on, feet-to-the-pavement putting into practice the foundations laid through the Inward Disciplines of Prayer and Study, Fasting and Meditation, and then nurtured and grown through the Outward Disciplines of Simplicity and Solitude, Submission and Service.

 

These Corporate Disciplines guide us into functioning as the early church … doing life together.   As we learn the richness of Confession and the depth of Worship, the necessity of Guidance and the joy of Celebration, our understanding of the beauty of the Church, the vibrant Body of Christ, will undoubtedly grow and our recognition of our need for fellowship with one another will be increased.

    Teri Lynne ~ I’m looking forward to reading the upcoming posts about corporate disciplines. What a beautiful thing when the body functions well together.

    I love how you said, “As we learn the richness of Confession and the depth of Worship, the necessity of Guidance and the joy of Celebration, our understanding of the beauty of the Church, the vibrant Body of Christ, will undoubtedly grow and our recognition of our need for fellowship with one another will be increased.”

    The importance of fellowship is something that I only began to understand when I became an authentic believer. And fellowship’s impact has only grown since then!

    I’m looking forward to reading these posts, too. And I’m thankful for the fellowship you all grow here on this site.
