Show Notes

In this month’s episode of Friends in For­ma­tion, Nate, Richel­la, and James answer lis­ten­er ques­tions about which Chris­t­ian Stream gives the most bang for the buck,” how to dis­cern when to fast (or prac­tice any spir­i­tu­al dis­ci­pline), and how to have spir­i­tu­al con­ver­sa­tions with kids who are grown.

[2:32] Of the Six Streams, which is the best one to sit in that gives the most bang for the buck in the jour­ney of Chris­t­ian spir­i­tu­al formation?

[19:24] I strug­gle a lot in my day-to-day life with deci­sion fatigue, sec­ond-guess­ing myself, and fears about not being good enough.” This past school term, I devel­oped a very ben­e­fi­cial rhythm of week­ly fast­ing and found the prac­tice deeply help­ful. How­ev­er, now that I’m on my sum­mer sched­ule that old rhythm no longer works well and I haven’t fast­ed con­sis­tent­ly. When­ev­er it’s been a while since I’ve fast­ed, I start think­ing about it fre­quent­ly, even every day or every meal and fret­ting about whether it’s a good time or not…. Are there some sta­bi­liz­ing ques­tions or thoughts that I can come back to when I start to debate fast­ing? What are valid vs. invalid rea­sons not to fast, be it in the moment or for a season? 

[37:50] What are some sug­ges­tions in talk­ing to adult chil­dren about spir­i­tu­al matters?
