During this workshop, we will read, practice and reflect on the streams outlined in Richard Foster’s book, Streams of Living Water. Our discussions will be based on Renovare’s six streams — Prayer, Holiness, Social Justice, Evangelical, Spirit Filled and Incarnational — that lead to a balanced life in the Kingdom of God. While we won’t cover every page, there will be opportunity for each of you to veer off the course structure to explore new ways to enter into listening and responding to the heartbeat of God.
You will need access to a copy of Richard Foster’s Streams of Living Water during this class.
