Journal Reflections: Spiritual Disciplines Assignment with following 3 points:
1. Leadership and Delight in God: Shaw and Strobel have argued that our highest response to God is delight. Do you agree? If so how do you cultivate this in your own life and the life of those you lead? If you disagree, what is our highest response to God? Support your conclusions with a theological and scriptural basis.
2. Edwards, Leadership, and Resolutions: Jonathan Edwards wrote half of his 70 resolutions by the time he was 20 years old. I want you to start writing your own list of life-resolutions (or continue writing if you already have started life-resolutions). Use this weeks journal to begin your own list of leadership and life-resolutions and the steps you will take to meet those goals. Include resolutions about your spiritual life, your family life, and your ministry life. Make sure to take Strobels advice into account when you are creating your resolutions. Recognize that these resolutions need to be Spirit-led and not created from your own fleshly effort.
1. Learning Discipline from Leaders: How has reading about the spiritual disciplines of Bonhoeffer and Edwards influenced your own spiritual discipline? What practices or changes do you anticipate making in your own spiritual life based on what you have read so far in the course textbooks.
