What are Christian Practices?
“Christian practices are not activities we do to make something spiritual happen in
our lives. Nor are they duties we undertake to be obedient to God. Rather, they are
patterns of communal action that create openings in our lives where the grace, mercy,
and presence of God may be made known to us. They are places where the power of
God is experienced. In the end, these are not ultimately our practices but forms of
participation in the practice of God.”
— Craig Dykstra
In five facilitated conversations in November and December, we will explore five practices that will help us to respond to God’s grace and reflect God’s love in our lives as individuals and as a community.
Note that we will not meet on Advent I, November 30, or Advent IV, December 21. All are welcome to any or all.
12:30 PM at the Advocate.
