Intentional faith development means having a purpose and a plan to help your faith grow. The author of 5 Practices believes that your plan must include other people -- he goes so far as to quote John Wesley in saying, "Christianity is essentially a social religion...to turn it into a solitary one is to destroy it." In other words, if we want to stay connected to Christ, we must find ways to stay connected to each other.
