The Lost Art of Lingering: Mutual Mentoring for Life Transformation

by Rowland Forman

What if we approached mentoring relationships to listen and learn, rather than merely to talk and teach? What if mentoring friendships became the norm in your church rather than an off-to-the-side ministry? 

This book is an invitation to engage in relational slowing, to linger long enough for spiritual friendships to develop over time. It is also a call to fold key mentoring practices into your life or small group so that they become life-changing habits.

The Lost Art of Lingering is also for leaders who dream about a day when God will create a mentoring/disciplemaking culture in their church. They long to see Spirit-orchestrated transformational friendships folded into every aspect of church life, where two or more people come with the attitude: “I’ve come to listen to you and the Holy Spirit through you. I’ve come to learn from you and want to be real with you. I’m a work in progress, so please come and grow with me.”
