Discover how the discipline of imagination makes the future real! Smith notes how Richard Foster wrote the classic Celebration of Discipline about the spiritual habits that God uses to engage actively in our lives. Among disciplines such as prayer, fasting, and corporate worship, Foster explores meditation. The principal portal of meditation, he suggests, is the imagination. “I want to propose a new discipline,” writes Smith, “the ‘discipline of imagining.” We must intentionalize imagining—deliberately and prayerfully imaging the specific things we believe God has said are possible for us. We must regularly practice this in the same manner as we engage in other spiritual practices. “We simply must become convinced of the importance of thinking and experiencing in images.”
