Conversation #5 Nathan Foster no. 12 / by Joshua Banner

In this conversation Josh and Nathan discuss spiritual disciplines, the six streams of spirituality celebrated by Renovaré, ecumenicism, mysticism, and parenting. How indeed do we help anyone, especially our own children grow spiritually? Josh introduces this conversation with a longer 'audio essay' on his own history with books by Nathan's father, Richard Foster and how Richard Foster and Dallas Willard continue to be sources of help and inspiration as he grows as a spiritual director. Feel free to skip ahead (approx 15 mins in) directly to the conversation with Nathan if you'd like. Also, you are invited to listen to Nathan's interview of Josh on the Renovaré site, In that interview Josh talks about the development of the Invitation Podcast and his work in contemplative prayer outreach in a prison. Stay tuned for a long form retreat led by Nathan available later this summer!
