baptism, and the habits teach us how to participate in Christ’s eternal kingdom. Discipleship training is not
intended to simply be a way of becoming more religious or more spiritual. Discipleship training is about being more engaged in Christ’s redeeming kingdom in the world. The seven habits open our hearts to the wonder and mystery of Christ’s redeeming work in our lives, in our faith community, neighborhood, society, and in the world. The seven habits of Jesus give us his own capacity to celebrate the love, joy, peace, justice and hope he has brought into the world. The habits of Jesus help us to discern and celebrate that Christ is making all things new.
