Managing Monday with Richard Foster – Take 3

Posted by on Jan 1, 2018 in Blog | 0 comments

Richard Foster (1942 – ) is an American theologian and author in the Quaker tradition. His 1978 book Celebration of Discipline has sold over one million copies, and has perhaps been more influential than any other book in helping those in the evangelical stream of Christianity to rediscover and experience some of the spiritual disicplines that have nurtured the church for centuries. He has also written significant books on prayer and simplicity. This is our third look at some of his reflections… They are worth pondering at the start of a new year

  • If worship does not propel us into greater obedience, it has not been worship. To stand before the Holy One of eternity is to change. Richard Foster
  • As worship begins in holy expectancy, it ends in holy obedience. Holy obedience saves worship from becoming an opiate, an escape from the pressing needs of modern life. Richard Foster
  • Intercession is a way of loving others. Richard Foster
  • Spiritual disciplines are the answer to a shallow world. Richard Foster

As always, nice chatting – and Happy New Year…
