Spiritual Practices for Everyday Life

Fuller faculty reflect on how spiritual practices such as prayer, scripture reading, and attentiveness enrich and enliven their faith.

“The gospel is freedom, and for me that’s what being more intentional in my contemplative practices is – I experience a sense of the joy of who Christ is in a way that gives me a freedom I have never known before.”
