R.E.A.L.

R.E.A.L. is a simple set of spiritual practices that can be integrated into ordinary life to help cultivate a life of following Jesus

REFLECT – Be in a posture of growth and learning in God and life. Read regularly from the Scriptures, particularly the gospels and the teachings of Jesus. Learn, read, and discuss from fiction and non-fiction books as well as other leaders and practitioners.

EAT – Spend time in community by having a meal or a drink with someone. Practice hospitality and the basics of life over a meal with people both inside and outside the community of faith.

ACT – Do something as a person created by God with a purpose. Bless people in concrete ways both inside and outside the community of faith.

LISTEN – Commit a period of time to simply listening and meditating on the voice of God. This could be contemplatively in silence, to music, or while walking. Listen for what God might be speaking into your life right now. Try to commit 60 minutes to this.
