Taize and Other Stuff
I am working on a book about different pathways for experiencing Christ and growing closer to him. My premise is that the standard evangelical methods of personal Bible study and small groups are limiting and that we should expose ourselves to a wider array of spiritual growth opportunities. Additionally, we should recognize the discipleship value of certain things we are already doing (like missions trips and retreats) and seek to maximize that value in the ways that we approach them.
Here's what I need. I'm looking for people that have had experience with and would be willing to comment on any of the following experiences:
- Stations of the Cross
- Spiritual Formation Retreats
- Corporate Fasting
- Charistmatic Worship Services
- Passion Worship Conferences, Catalyst Conferences, etc.
As I continue to work on my research, I will post more requests like this from time to time.
If you would be willing to share your thoughts on any of these, please use the comment thread or shoot me an email.
