The Great Omission

is a book a few of us are reading and going to talk about: it is purportedly about discipleship but it is not what evangelicals talk about then they mean discipleship… it is about Spiritual Fomation. For Willard well points out that it is not until we care for the soul that we can be disciples. As some have said “it is tough to pour from an empty jar” (a cracked one at that). So there are two things that I really heard Willard say: First that we need to practice solitude until we become good at it. Second, that we need to memorize Scripture. … WHAT? Memorize Scripture? Are you kidding? NO, he is not. How can the word pour forth it we do not hide it in our hearts? When was the last time you memorized a verse?
