Soul Training Practices

"Without God, we cannot. Without us, God will not." - St. Augustine

Our knowledge and experience of God is participatory. Transformation comes as we cooperate with the Holy Spirit through “training our souls”.  


As we practice the way of Jesus together, traveling as an apprentice to Jesus, we commit to doing what we can do. We make space for God to do what only He can do, by engaging in soul training practices.


While this is nowhere near an exhaustive list, we pray that these resources will encourage and equip you for the journey with Jesus. 

Connect with God.

Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him

The breath of the Almighty gives me life

O LORD, you have examined my heart

I remember my affliction...and yet this I call to mind and therefore I have hope

Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good!

Blessed is the one who meditates on God's word

Please remember there isn’t actually anything “spiritual” in the soul training practices themselves. They simply create the space for God to work in our lives and our Christian spiritual formation.

Richard Foster says: “By themselves, spiritual disciplines can do nothing; they can only get us to the place where something can be done. They are God’s means of grace. God has ordained the disciplines of the spiritual life as the means by which we place ourselves where he can bless us.”
