Practicing Our Faith: A Way of Life for a Searching People
Tired of giving something up for Lent? Tired of the messages that our lives and faith don’t measure up? Tired of driving on the same road in the same well-worn ruts of life and feeling like you are not getting anywhere?
What if we steer out of the ruts we normally drive on through life and go in new directions this year? What if we search for ways to order our lives around what is good and true?
Each week, a new “practice” will be posted here from the book Practicing Our Faith: A Way of Life for a Searching People. A practice is something that can be done over time to open ourselves up to live life in healthy, whole and faithful ways. We invite you to read the definition of the practice and then find ways to order your life around the practice for the week (“think the box”). Neither the definition or the list of activities will be exhaustive, but instead, a beginning point for thinking, living and experiencing in new and deeper ways the wondrous life we have.
We also invite you to grow in the practices together. Our worship each Sunday at 8:30 and 10:45 am during Lent will focus on a specific practice. A weekly contemplative service on Wednesday nights at 7:00 pm will reflect on each practice. And, discussion groups on Sundays at 9:30 am, Wednesdays at 7:30 pm and Thursdays at 10 am will support our mutual journey.
We hope this journey will open you up in new ways to the faith you are already living and guide you to participate in little and big ways in the activity of God for the world.
