Today's Christian Woman focuses on spiritual disciplines and practices to help you go deeper in your faith

Community

God created us to live out our faith within the context of the body of Christ. The Christian life was not meant to be journeyed alone. So through this discipline we learn to engage other believers through the common practice of worship, service, prayer, celebration, confession, and other activities with the shared goal of knowing and experiencing the triune God in a fuller, more complete way.
