022.0 - Chris Hall - Spiritual Formation


In our 22nd audio adventure with John, Jonny, and Jonathan, there is some discussion on deep voices… and not-so-deep voices.  And SPEAKING of deep voices, Jonathan interviews Chris Hall.  Dr. Hall currently serves as president of Renovaré (an amazing organization that you need to learn more about ASAP).  Before becoming President of Renovaré, Chris was Director of Academic Spiritual Formation and Distinguished Professor of Theology at Eastern University. He is the author of a number of books, including The Mystery of God (with Steven D. Boyer; Baker Academic), Reading Scripture with the Church FathersLearning Theology with the Church FathersWorshiping with the Church Fathers (InterVarsity Press), and The Trinity (with Roger Olson; Eerdmans).  After the interview, the three Js basically have to take a second because their brains are full… but they get rolling and share some thoughts about what it means to take some of the ideas presented by Dr. Hall and apply them to youth ministry settings.  They discuss things like silent retreats, experiential prayer, and how someone could regularly attend church for 12 years and still be the same person.  It’s good study - enjoy!
