The Practice Church Podcast

The Practice is a community that gathers for worship, prayer, teaching, and communion. The Scripture, prayers, and songs of our opening liturgy help us to set aside all that distracts us from the Lord’s loving presence. We slow down to learn and engage the spiritual practices that help us to walk with Jesus. Every gathering, we center around the communion table to meet with Christ in a tangible way. Through all of this, we are seeking to create a sacred space, both in our gatherings and in our everyday lives, so we can practice the way of Jesus together for the sake of the world.

The Practice is an experimental gathering where we immerse ourselves in God’s dream for humanity, practice the historic disciplines that align us with His dream, and carry each other along the way. We are learning to live out Jesus’ teachings in the world.

This year during Lent, we are diving into a very intentional journey with the spiritual practice of lament. Lament is a good and proper response when we come face to face with the brokenness in ourselves and in the world. During this holy season, we will enter into an experiment which helps us make space in our lives for lament.

This week, Joan Kelley helped us understand the need to lament the losses we experience in life. She invited us to see lament as a way of asking God to hold our hearts in the midst of our pain.

You can find the handout here. And if you are joining us in the experiment and are not a part of a Table, will you let us know here? We would love to support your experiment.

This week, David Bailey guided the next movement of our experiments, Lament for Injustice. David said, "God is a liberating God for an oppressed people, a party throwing God for a partying people, and a reconciling God for a reconciled people.

This week, Casey Tygrett helped us explore the need to lament our sin. He helped us locate our true identity in God's story. Casey said, "Lament for our sin is expressing deep sadness when we forget who we are."

This week, Nicole Howe began our series, helping us craft an experiment. What do we do to avoid pain in our lives? What might God be inviting us to fast from to make room for lament? How might we deepen our communion with God and one another if we intentionally practice writing psalms of lament in this season?
