“There is a common yet false supposition among Christians that practicing the spiritual disciplines (prayer, memorizing and meditating on Scripture, fasting, confession of sin, etc.) is sufficient to maintain spiritual growth. But as vital as these practices are, they are not sufficient. Small groups provide the encouragement, correction, and accountability that are necessary to keep us from drifting. We need others to help us in our pursuit of sanctification.” C.J. Mahaney, Why Small Groups? p. 6.
Parish Bible Studies begin again September 5. Check with your parish elder about when and where yours meets.
If you are interested in starting another study and you have some folks who want to attend with you, please let me know so I can be sure to send you the study questions in time.
