Just a quick note to invite BCC-ers to join me for a year following Richard Foster’s Celebration of Discipline. Mormons are disciplined people already but Foster’s excellent book offers a way, perhaps, to expand and enrich our practice of Christian discipline.
My aim is to start in November and then, via posts and discussion here at BCC, to offer a supportive environment for practising the disciplines.
The disciplines are:
We will look at one every month.
A bonus discipline will be pilgrimage. We are planning a BCC-led pilgrimage trip to Norway to walk Olav’s Way next summer, to which you are all invited. Join the Mormon Confraternity of St. James on Facebook to keep-up-to-date. (The Utah members of the MCSJ are also keen to do ad hoc pilgrimages throughout the year, if Norway sounds impossible. For any Brits reading, I am interested in a pilgrimage to St. David’s.)
The beginning of the Christian year (Advent) is fast approaching! Get the book and check back here next month.
