10 Spiritual Disciplines for Living Well

Working in inner city and urban parishes tends to demand a simplified approach to spiritual life, hence ‘The Big Four of Discipleship’ or ‘The 4 Ws’\r\n\r\nBut sometimes more nuance is required, so this morning I jotted down these 10 disciplines I’m trying to build into my life. The are – in no particular order -\r\n


  1. reading scripture
  2. \r\n

  3. prayer
  4. \r\n

  5. experiencing solitutude
  6. \r\n

  7. reading books
  8. \r\n

  9. observing a sabbath rest
  10. \r\n

  11. worship – by which I mean songs and hymns
  12. \r\n

  13. fitness
  14. \r\n

  15. memorising scriptures
  16. \r\n

  17. helping others
  18. \r\n

  19. giving to others.
  20. \r\n

\r\nIt’s a beautiful Saturday. I wonder how many of these can be achieved wandering around the city?
