Spiritual Formation for Lent

Why not try turning some of your Christian beliefs into life practices during Lent?  That’s what we’ll experiment with in this seven week Spiritual Formation Group on Wednesday nights at Crestwood beginning January 31st.  

In the life of Jesus there are six distinct areas we can try to incorporate into our lives:

  • Devotion to God
  • Virtue in thought, word and action
  • Empowerment by the Spirit
  • Compassion toward all people
  • Proclamation of the good news of the gospel
  • Harmony between faith and work.  

Every week we’ll each choose a simple way to try to live out that week’s emphasis, and the next week we’ll talk about our experience and encourage each other going forward.  If you’re looking for a Lenten focus for growth in Christ, this is a wonderful opportunity, shared together with a community of others.

We’ll be guided by the resource A Spiritual Formation Workboook.  Please sign up in advance with Pastor Rob Burns (robertburns@crestwoodchurch.org) so that we can have a workbook available for you.
