At the beginning of the month of September, 19 people from our church began a journey to become Apprentices of Jesus. Each week we have read from a book, reflected on Scripture, memorized verses from Colossians 3.1-17, and practiced soul training exercises to help us practice, experience and think about what we’re learning as we become more Christlike.
These soul training exercises aren’t as big of a deal as you might think. To experience the true nature of God, we’ve slept more, spent five minutes a day in purposeful silence, noticed creation more often, and made it a point to count our blessings.
We thought you might like to try some of them out too.
