19 – Spiritual Disciplines – Intention on the Spiritual Journey

In Celebration of Discipline: The Path to Spiritual Growth (page v) Richard Foster distinguishes between inward disciplines, outward disciplines and corporate disciplines.

The Inward Disciplines

  • Meditation
  • Prayer
  • Fasting
  • Study

The Outward Disciplines

  • Simplicity
  • Solitude
  • Submission
  • Service

The Corporate Disciplines

  • Confession
  • Worship
  • Guidance
  • Celebration

This may help us remember that ultimately the spiritual practices are not a private, self-focused matter.
