Read this article to find out more about Dallas Willard, "spiritual formation", Richard Foster, and "centering". Has Buddhism mixed with monastic Catholicism made inroads into Protestant Christianity? The article admonishes Christians to know what we believe and why we believe it based on Scripture, exposing what is happening as discernment has gone awol within the church.
I did want to write you and let you know what a wonderful time our high school students had. I truly believe this trip made a difference in many of their lives. We had a few of our kids tell their parents that they are going to take their walk with Christ more seriously…I want to thank you for motivating the kids with those memory verses. I was just so proud of every one of them for remembering those verses. Thank you for the gifts you gave our kids.Yvette ThomasYouth leader, Life ChurchTemecula, CA
Hi Dwayna, Thanks for the info you’ve sent me. We appreciate your trip to our Sunday School class so much. What you had to say [about the New Age Movement and yoga] was so important and is causing quite a stir. Some people are wanting us to get back to the Bible in August and study what God’s Word says about reincarnation, spiritism, etc. That will be great!!!!! You are quite a young woman with God’s strength and truth shining through you…Thank you so much for your Godly talk with us on Sunday.Beverly IgoSunrise Methodist ChurchColorado Springs, CO
