Whole Faith

We began our study by exploring Whole faith: essential ingredients for a life of complete faith. Using Richard Foster’s book Streams of Living Water as a launching point, we began by examining what it means to live a Christ-centered life. We then reviewed the major traditions and practices of the Christian faith including:

  • the Evangelical tradition (with its emphasis on the Word),
  • the Social Justice tradition (with its emphasis on compassion),
  • the Holiness tradition (with its emphasis on personal character),
  • the Charismatic tradition (with its emphasis on the Spirit),
  • the Contemplative tradition (with its emphasis on prayer), and
  • the Incarnational tradition (with its emphasis on being light in all spheres of life).

Our conclusion: we are often people who have “holes” in our faith because we neglect one or more of these biblical emphases in our lives. However, as people of “whole” faith, we should embrace them all.
