DISCIPLESHIP PRACTICES FOR TRANSFORMATION
Missional practices and habits play a significant role in our transformation. Rarely do we think our way into a new way acting; rather, we tend to act our way into a new way of thinking. When we look to Jesus we see Him consistently inviting people to join Him in His mission. He invited people to practice the Kingdom life or participate in the Kingdom prior to their transformation. In fact, it was the practicing and participating that catalyzed their transformation.
In this session we will learn one set of missional practices which we find helpful in Forge. These practices will push us closer to the Father, the world around us, and those who are joining us in mission. Additionally, these practices will catalyze our transformation and the transformation of those we are sharing life with.
We encourage you to lean into these practices in a tangible way. Simply agreeing with them intellectually will not move you into a new way of thinking about mission in your context. The reward of trying new ways of living will be worth the risks you take.
