In Encountering God, Kelly Minter explores how essential spiritual disciplines are to our faith experience and everyday lives. She'll unpack the biblical foundation for these sacred habits along with approachable ways to practice disciplines like prayer, study, worship, rest, simplicity, hospitality, and celebration. Over 8 sessions, you�ll discover that spiritual disciplines aren't just one more thing to add to your to-do list, but they can actually create more margin in your life, resulting in deeper peace, communion, and rest. And perhaps most importantly, cultivating habits of faith help you know God more, as you release control to Him, express your need for Him, and walk in glad submission and worship of Him.
