Journey On

Thought I'd give a sneak peek at the cover of my small group curriculum, Sacred Roads, coming from Threads in September. It's a journey along the historic paths of discipleship-- from the community of the Love Feasts in the first century, to the mass and soaring cathedrals of the Middle Ages, to the systematic study of Scripture in the Age of Reason, to the personal discipline of the Pietists and Puritans, to the blood, sweat, and tears of the abolitionists, missionaries, and activists of the modern age. There's so much to learn from the rich history of our faith and the legacy left by the pilgrims who have walked the road of faith before us.

The study is about 1/3 history, 1/3 Bible study, and 1/3 practical application of principles and tools that will help us grow as disciples of Jesus.

Hi Heather - can't wait to check out your book! My husband Ben and I lead the small group ministry at Beza International in Addis Ababa and your study looks like a great tool for our small group leaders - love that it has some strong history components, as well. God bless your work!

Hi Heather,
Your book sounds great! I can't wait to order it. I am the NEW Spiirtual Formation pastor at our church in WA so I am exploring all sorts of ideas to implement SF/discipleship in our church. You blog is a wonderful resource as well. I think I will become a regular reader! Thanks for forging the way!
