Meeting my neighbor.
Taking a nap.
In Living the Way of Jesus: Practicing the Christian Calendar One Week at a Time, Rev. Michaele LaVigne helps us understand how seemingly mundane things can become deeply spiritual practices. Using the Christian calendar as a guide, LaVigne invites us into easy, practical, and transformative weekly practices for use across each season of a three-year liturgical cycle. Alongside the exercises are helpful introductions into more traditional spiritual disciplines such as contemplative prayer, fasting, lectio divina, and silence.
LaVigne reminds us that learning to live the way of Jesus takes practice, just like learning anything else worthwhile. From Advent to Easter, from Pentecost all the way through Ordinary Time, the simple habits in this book have the potential to transform lives and communities. Offered as a congregational, group, or individual resource, Living the Way of Jesus will bring fresh understanding and new passion to your walk with Christ.
