#Devotional Materials from All We Can
All We Can is an international development and emergency relief organisation. Focusing on those in greatest need, it is inspired by Christian principles, and is an integral part of the Methodist family.
IDEAS, the Family Friendly Churches Trust website is packed with resources, activities and songs to use to when worshipping with young people at home. During the current health crisis, they are offering a free service each week of prayers, address and hymns (with music) for use of those who cannot get to church.
Just as during this time of social distancing and self-isolation we are encouraged to find ways of continuing to do physical exercise, so it is important for our spiritual health for us to find ways to train our souls.
Soul-training exercises are simple exercises that we can practice in order to enable us to become more aware of how God is at work within us and the world.
The exercises included in this section are taken from two books by James Bryan Smith, "The Good and Beautiful God" and "The Good and Beautiful Life". They may need to be adapted slightly in some instances to take account of our current context. However, simply taking one exercise a week and practicing it as often as you are able to will help you to know more of God's peace and grace in your life. Click here
