Why Do Spiritual Practices Matter?
In a world like ours, an unattended faith life can become like a stale room, an obnoxious child, or a vacant lot filled with thorns. Rather than thriving, we end up living inattentively. Our relationships and our communities deserve better. By the grace of God, spiritual practices are about exploring the intersections of life and faith. They help us experience a sense of God’s presence beyond just survival.
