Spiritual Disciplines for Urban Christians

Date: Friday, 25 September 2009

Time: 14:30 - 21:30

Location: Singapore Bible College

With so many Christians living and working in the city, our spirituality must fit the dynamics and challenges of urban life. We need to learn to be "in but not of" the city. This seminar will explore several spiritual disciplines and practices that will enable us to be faithful and joyful Christians in the midst of the trials and temptations of the city. We will draw on the teaching of the Scriptures and the wisdom of our spiritual heritage in considering these spiritual practices. Particular attention will be given to the interplay of individual and corporate spiritual practices for life in an urban context. These include confession and repentance, the use and reading of Scriptures, the practice of Sabbath and the Lord’s Supper.
