Much of the material for this course is adapted from Richard Foster's book "Celebration of Discipline". Ideally this course should be done within a group. This helps us to see ourselves and our growth through other's eyes. Often, we may feel as if we are getting nowhere, but others can help us by encouraging us. We also learn from others as we journey on the path to spiritual growth together. I do not believe that the realisation of our full potential can happen without community. We need others to realise our own potential and spiritual growth. However, if you cannot find at least one good, close friend to share your journey, I would suggest that you write a journal as you make your way through this course. All you need is a little notebook, write down your experiences, both positive and negative in your journal. Write down anything that strikes you as relevant. Keep track of the dates. This way, you will be able to look back and monitor your own progress. I will be adding more to this course as I get the time, so keep it bookmarked and check in from time to time. If you would like to contact me personally, please e-mail me - I'd love to hear from you.

I will be adding to this as and when I get time. I plan on adding a section on The Discipline of Guidance and Confession eventually.
