Christ the King Center welcomes back Dr. Brian Fast for a reprise of his popular Spiritual Formation Series. This fourth in a series of four, entitled Four Uncommon Sources of Energy for the Spiritual Marathon covers the following:
- Authenticity and vulnerability in the life of the believer. We will explore excerpts from the Psalms, Lamentations, the life of Jesus, current research from Brene Brown on vulnerability and wholeheartedness, and discover that "God meets us where we are rather than where we pretend to be" (L Crabb, CS Lewis).
- The place of a Spiritual Friend or peer in your spiritual formation, as distinct from a spiritual director. We will see the importance of becoming more discerning and intentional about the number and types of relationships we have in our lives at any given time. We practice authenticity and vulnerability through finding and being a spiritual friend.
- The place of self-care in spiritual formation. Sometimes our greatest spiritual need is sleep!... or exercise or a quiet walk in a beautiful place or a hobby. We need to know ourselves well enough to understand what keeps our souls well and then give ourselves permission to build these things into the regular weekly schedules and seasons of our lives. A practical tool and help will be offered as we seek regular trips to green pastures and still waters and the careful tending of our souls (Ps 23, Prov 4:6).
