    Season 10: Episode 8 | The Nature and Dynamics of Spiritual Disciplines

    Season 10: Episode 8 | The Nature and Dynamics of Spiritual Disciplines

    We jump into the deep weeds in episode 8 and begin with a paradox and Romans 8:10. Note there is a dead body in this episode, and neither Ruth Haley Barton or Steve Weins want to talk about it. In Mulholland's work, he talks about silence, solitude and prayer as postures and not just practices – inviting us into a deeper journey where only God can do the work. Very inviting and very challenging.

    Season 10: Episode 7 | The Classic Spiritual Disciplines

    Season 10: Episode 7 | The Classic Spiritual Disciplines

    We begin this episode by redeeming the word “disciplines" by offering up the word “practices” and looking at disciplines through the lens of desire and about opening ourselves up to God, reminding us that we are not in charge of our spiritual journey. Ruth Haley Barton and Steve Weins discuss four practices: prayer, spiritual readings, lectio divina, and liturgy. They sound familiar, but be prepared for some refreshing ideas on how to use them to open yourself up to God.SUBSCRIBE ON ITUNES

    Season 10: Episode 6 | The Classic Christian Pilgrimage

    In this episode, Ruth Haley Barton and Steve Weins move to looking at the four classic Christian stages of spiritual journey – awakening, purgation, illumination, union. Mulholland makes a valuable contribution to our understanding with five aspects of purgation. Steve and Ruth discuss current events and why we shouldn't shy away from the sin of omission in regards to systematic racial injustice and the role the church has played it in.

    Season 10: Episode 4 | Holistic Spirituality, Part 1

    What is Holistic Spirituality? How does one nurture the whole person along with answering this question: What does love require of me? Because insisting on "being myself” is really not holistic spirituality. Ruth Haley Barton and Steve Wiens discuss both the positive and negative expressions of each of the Myers-Briggs personality types.
