Of the three ministry links provided, the Transforming Center is the one from which much of my spiritual formation has been nurtured these past ten years. Our journey with Ruth began just after Melissa’s chemotherapy. We were looking for a quieter way of discipleship and stumbled onto Ruth’s book, Invitation to Silence and Solitude: Experiencing God’s Transforming Presence. From that point forward we sensed God leading us to plant a church whose primary focus/mission would be Spiritual Formation. We then joined a Transforming Community and now hope to continue our walk through a network of churches called to formation. I lean upon each of the ministries mentioned on this page, but Ruth’s by far, is the most influential of them.
