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.

The season of Advent is a time of preparation and anticipation. We prepare our lives to receive God: in the reality of the incarnation, in this present moment, and in the age to come. In our Advent series, we will explore how God comes into the lives of various people in the story, and we will prepare ourselves to encounter God in similar ways in our lives today. I am really excited about how this series has come together, and I cannot wait to engage this holy season with you. This week, Dan Crumrine guides our exploration of Isaiah and how we can prepare to encounter God in the waiting. Dan shared two important postures we learn from Isaiah, hopeful anticipation and preparation.

Cultivating a conversational intimacy with Jesus is essential in our desire to be formed by Jesus to be like Jesus for the sake of the world. And yet, many in the church today are convinced that either God doesn't speak to them, or they cannot hear God. Our prayer for this series is for each of us to have a greater sense of how we most often hear God so we might grow into a deeper life with God. What if we cultivated a life in which we listened to God in the midst of our ordinary day so we might deepen our friendship with God?

This week, Alan Fadling encouraged us to slow down to hear God's voice. Slowing to the pace of prayer, grace, peace, and love cultivates the kind of unhurried life that allows us to deepen our conversational intimacy with God.

What if we cultivated a life in which we listened to God in the midst of our ordinary day so we might deepen our friendship with God?

This week, Holly Bosier guided our contemplation on hearing God. We considered the gentle voice of love that comes from the Good Shepherd and the accusing voice of the enemy. As we cultivate a deeper bond with Jesus, we are able to stand against the words of the enemy to follow our Good Shepherd more closely.

This week, we explored God's desire to partner with humanity and, as Dallas Willard wrote, "to live in a free-hearted collaboration with Jesus and his friends in the kingdom." This sort of conversational intimacy begins in friendship, and helps us to live with God more fully in the midst of our everyday lives.
