Serious Christians and new believers alike are looking for ways to grow in their faith. But does spiritual discipline imply sticking to a rigid diet of prayer and Bible study, church meetings and community service? No! In a friendly, conversational style, Jo Kadlecek invites Christians to come and feast at God's banquet table.
Using the analogy of the four basic food groups, she shows how God wants to nourish his people with a balanced life so that they can have a healthy impact in the world:
-- Solitude with God restores and directs us.
-- Out of our time alone with God flows compassionate service to others.
-- Our relationships in Christian community support and challenge us.
-- Through contemplation of truth our minds are renewed, our lives transformed.
Seasoned with anecdotes and quotations and sprinkled with interactive challenges, each chapter encourages readers to draw near to God and experience the abundance of his table.
