More on discipleship and transformation

The goal of discipleship is transformation, steadily becoming more like Christ. It is Christ in us and the hope of this transforming presence that continues to give meaning to our lives. We must remember that discipleship should not happen alone. We must have community for discipleship to be effective. We need relational intimacy with those that have walked this journey ahead of us and understand the highs and lows and the ins and outs of this roller-coaster ride we call the Christian life. And as we have been poured into by seasoned souls we too must pour ourselves into the lives of others.

Ok I am relatively new to your blog, slap me if you have covered this but with the discipleship stuff that you are talking about it would be great to bring in the Christian spiritual disciplines.

A couple of books come to mind.
A celebration of Discipline - Richard Foster

The Life You've Always Wanted
John Ortberg

and of course
Intimacy with God: Christian disciplines for spiritual growth
by John Caldwell
