The Other 99 - Equipping The Church for Community, Discipleship, and Mission
About This Show
Across all denominations, pastors make up only 1% of Christians in America, yet they are expected to do the bulk of the work of the church. Every other week, David, Bethany, and Guy will have a conversation that aims to equip the other 99% - normal church folk - to do the work of the church.
Welcome to The Other 99, a podcast to equip the church for community, discipleship, and mission.

6 days ago
We continue our series on spiritual disciplines this week with an episode focusing on all (ok, maybe just most) of the ways we engage with Scripture. Here's what we talk about: Recap of our challenges and charges for prayer; Recap of our challenges and charges for fasting; Why we read Scripture; Our engagement with Scripture isn't one-size fits all; We will read at different levels; We will memorize at different levels; Bible memorization is more than a party trick; Reading the Bible in community is vital; How Scripture interacts with other disciplines; What happens in our quiet time shouldn't stay in our quiet time; ADDITIONAL RESOURCES We want to be honest and say that we are not experts in any of these disciplines. We can only share what we're learning and what we've experienced. We hope you find what we have to say helpful. If you want to continue reading and learning about silence and solitude, or any of the spiritual disciplines, we recommend taking a look at these resources: Celebration of Discilpine by Richard Foster; Spirit of the Disciplnes by Dallas Willard; Spiritual Disciplines for the Christian Life by Donald Whitney; Invitation to a Journey by M.
