Living in God’s Presence: Christian Discipleship as a Practice

Being “followers of The Way” is not merely assent to a set of principles; it is a way of life in which we embody our relationship to God and one another as creatures made for communion. It is how we care for one another and forgive each other; how we see ourselves and the face of Christ in the stranger – even in our enemy. They are not strange practices; they are familiar, and teach us who we are, says Susan Briehl, co-editor of the book On Our Way: Christian Practices For Living A Whole Life. In a 7-minute video reflection housed on the website of The Valparaiso Project on the Education and Formation of People in Faith, Briehl discusses the life-giving practice of living in the presence of God. The Valpairaiso Project is an initiative that promotes 12 key Christian practices that embody the Christian faith as a way to feed the spiritual hunger of contemporary seekers. A downloadable PDF-formatted discussion guide accompanies the video. The reflection serves as a good summary for a study group.
