Christianity Today posts a beauty of a discussion regarding the difference between discipleship and spiritual formation.

This discussion, with Dallas Willard and Richard Foster is great, and I believe they are articulating what many of us are thinking about, wondering about, and just have questions about, but are unable to articulate ourselves. Of course I could be speaking just for myself, but I don’t think I am.

My favorite passage of the discussion/interview:

“You can’t hope to accomplish in 40 days what it takes 40 years to do. There has to be a willingness for barren day after barren day after barren day, a willingness for new forms of worship, new forms of living.”
