Intentional discipleship has been on my mind more and more these late summer days. Mostly because, I have assigned myself the task of developing some thinking about discipleship and how to proceed intentionally for Redland Church.

As frequently is the case, some word or thoughts come along by others which help me think deeper and wider and more intentionally about it. Such is the case today. I reviewed a post by Ben Sternke on his blog this morning which seemed very appropriate. I liked that he referred to Dallas Willard, one of my go-to-people on all things discipleship. And I liked that Ben pointed the reader away from program thinking to relationship thinking, which is something I have been practicing as I “disciple” or “mentor” young single adults over the past few years.

Here is his blog to see for yourself.
