Practising Spiritual Disciplines is an exciting new resource designed to educate and inspire Salvationists to explore 12 spiritual disciplines. This resource offers practical, hands-on materials that can be used to guide Salvationists on their spiritual journey. This focus fits with the Canada and Bermuda Territory’s strategic priority of Spiritual Health under the Mobilize theme. Our prayer is that this tool will draw Salvationists closer to God and, in return, bless our community and mission.

Take up the challenge of practising a different spiritual discipline each month.
