Spiritual Disciplines

Over the centuries, followers of Jesus across the world and across different denominations have found certain simple practices helpful in their walk with him. Prayer and fasting are two that might be more familiar, but did you know that community, silence, gratitude and even rest can be thought of as spiritual disciplines? On Sunday mornings in January and February we will be considering how these disciplines might help us today to follow Jesus more closely.

The Sermon on the Mount, Matthew 5-7

The teachings of Jesus found in the ‘Sermon on the Mount’ (Matthew chapters 5 to 7) are among the most well-known and well-loved, even by those who wouldn’t call themselves Christians. In The Vicar of Dibley, Geraldine Granger explains that she became a vicar after reading this passage! Many of the teachings can be extremely challenging to put into practice, however. ‘Love your enemy’ is simple, but not easy. We will consider Jesus’ rich teaching and ask what it means for us today.
