Spiritual

1. Daily Devotions – the how and why

2. Community
Questions can make hermits out of us, driving us into hiding. Yet the cave has no answers. Christ distributes courage through community; he dissipates doubts through fellowship. He never deposits all knowledge in one person but distributes pieces of the jigsaw puzzle to many. When you interlock your understanding with mine, and we share our discoveries, when we mix, mingle, confess and pray, Christ speaks. – Max Lucado

Building Healthy Relationships
Redemptive Community 
Life Together, by Dietrich Bonhoeffer

3. Stewardship
Every faculty you have, your power of thinking or of moving your limbs from moment to moment, is given you by God. If you devoted every moment of your whole life exclusively to His service, you could not give Him anything that was not in a sense His own already. – C.S. Lewis, Mere Christianity

Principles Of Stewardship
