These are the disciplines that have to happen in community in order for Spiritual Transformation to take place. These are what marks the difference between a Life Group and just a group of people who meet together. These disciplines can help you evaluate whether or not your group is hitting the bullseye of having life changing encounters with Jesus.
Life Group Disciplines
(As a sidenote, almost all of this material is from two â€˜mentorsâ€™ I have never personally met â€“ Richard Foster and John Ortberg. Foster’s work Celebration of Discipline still stands as THE classic on spiritual formation. Ortbergâ€™s session at the 2000 Willow Creek Small Groups Conference framed these sessions as you see here.)
