LIFE STREAMS: a lyfe resource for spiritual growth

James Bryan Smith with Lynda Graybeal

New, fully revised edition

For anyone asking ‘What will help me grow spiritually?’, Life Streams provides practical ways to transform your life and community from the inside out.

Adapted from Renovaré’s A Spiritual Formation Workbook, this workbook features guidelines for starting a Spiritual Formation Group, study plans for the first nine sessions and a questionnaire that helps map the way ahead. Offering fresh perspectives on Christian faith and practice, Life Streams contains all you need to start and maintain a Spiritual Formation Group.

In such small, intimate groups, people are finding themselves, finding each other, and finding God.
George H. Gallup Jr.
