This month’s journal and prayer prompts on our Instagram and Facebook accounts have briefly explored a few different spiritual disciplines. As you continue to discover which spiritual disciplines speak to your heart and the current season you’re in, we’ve also curated the resources below to help you.
Annie Down’s podcast conversation with Coach Mark Richt (Go Dawgs!) touches on the different disciplines he incorporates into his life, as well as a few stories that spoke to my heart. Give it a listen and pass it along to someone who could use a good pep talk. And the book below, Sacred Rhythms, is great for a deeper dive into spiritual disciplines. It’s easy to understand and full of daily practices to help you incorporate them into your life.
Be sure to share what you’re learning with your mentees; it might be just what they’re looking for to help them deepen their relationship with their Heavenly Father.
This interview between Annie Down and Coach Mark Richt is just the pep talk you need to get you going! Coach’s message is one of persevering through hard circumstances, which he dubs “finishing the drill.” They also discuss how he incorporates spiritual disciplines into his life. It’s a great listen and one you’ll immediately want to share with those around you!
Ruth Haley Barton’s explanation of spiritual disciplines in this book is both easy to understand and transformative. Each chapter contains exercises to guide you as you explore each spiritual discipline and determine how to apply them best. We are particularly fond of the Rule of Life exercise and have included it, along with the book, as part of the homework leading up to the Commencement Retreat.
We’re gathering on September 29th at 12pm ET along with the Radical Mentoring tribe to discuss learning styles . . . the different ways each of us learns and grows. Diving deeper into this topic can help us understand our mentees and lead them well. Eugene Wallace, who coordinates Radical Mentoring for Business, will lead this conversation. Eugene is a former teacher and principal who brings a wealth of knowledge to this subject.
Hosting your mentoring group doesn’t need to involve cooking an entire meal. A cup of coffee and a simple dessert are often all you need to get the conversation going. The next time you host your mentees, try this recipe for white chicken chili. It is so easy to make and a sure-fire crowd-pleaser as the weather gets cooler!
