Blogging "Celebration of Discipline"

I'm still relatively new to blogging, so I don't know if this is a common thing to do or if it's somewhat unique. A group of bloggers and other interested Christians, led by Messy Christian , will be group blogging the Richard Foster classic Celebration of Discipline: The Path to Spiritual Growth beginning this week.

This is one of those books that gets raves from everyone I know who has read it. I bought it years ago, tried to start it, but stopped due to reasons I can't even remember now. It has sat on my shelves since then, and many times I've thought about picking it up and trying again. I hope that this group blog and the loving peer pressure it engenders will be the impetus to encourage me to finally read through it. Plus, I'm looking forward to the comments of others, which hopefully will shed some light on the various chapters.

The way I understand it, we'll read a chapter a week, then write entries each Friday on our blogs about that chapter. I'll hopefully make my first entry this Friday. For more detailed information about all of this, go here .

Thanks, Messy, for helping to get this together, and here's to a successful and enriching experience for us all.

Howdy Muley! I am from South Texas. I am especially excited about the opportunity to learn from bloggers all over the world. But it is good to have a fellow Texan, even one under deep cover, involved.
