The next UBC value that facilitates our Process of Becoming is the practice of spiritual disciplines. These disciplines, most frequently exercised individually but also practiced in groups, include things like fasting, journaling, solitude, etc. The two primary disciplines practiced in the Christian church are prayer and Bible reading. For us, the value of these disciplines is realized as we take ownership of our spiritual growth, and discover and practice those spiritual disciplines that foster an increased knowledge and connectedness to God. (1 Sam 1:9-11; Isa 37:14-20; Matt 6:5-13, 16-18; Mk 1:35; 1 Tim 4:13; 2 Tim 3:14-17)
