Practicing Our Faith

Craig Dykstra wrote

"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."

Some of these Christian Practices are

Honoring the Body
Household economics
Saying Yes and Saying No
Keeping Sabbath
Shaping Communities
Dying Well
Singing Our Lives

I wonder how our churches will be if we all practice the above Christian Practices?
