PRAXIS - A LENTEN GUIDE
"Go therefore and make disciples of all nations."
Jesus commanded his first followers then and challenges us now to make disciples. It makes me pause though - am I a disciple? To be a disciple means to be a student of another. In the midst of all there is to do in life, focusing on being a student of Jesus can easily move down the priority list until it is 11pm and my head is already on the pillow. If we are to make disciples, we need to be disciples. We need to practice our faith and make it a priority. This Lent, join me and our fabulous writing team to PRAXIS - a Lenten commitment to practice our faith through daily meditation. I am amazed what happens to our group think and group spirit when we are all studying the same scriptures; people find connections with the folks and their faith family in new ways. I know this will be the same as we practice our faith in familiar and new ways.
We will be focusing on a different Praxis each week. This guide will allow you to experience God in a 6 different ways through stillness, service, scripture, prayer, letting go, and surrender. We also know the value of doing things in community and so we have groups meeting throughout the week.where we will be doing the Praxis together.
A huge thank you to our writing team led by Stacy Ikard, Drew Beckley, Janis Claflin and Phil Haag.
With great anticipation for God's work through our Praxis - Pastor Emily.
