"We are shaped every day, whether we know it or not, by practices — rituals and liturgies — that make us who we are. We receive these practices — which are often rote —not only from the church or the Scriptures but from the culture, from the 'air around us' ... The church is to be a radically alternative people, marked by the love of the triune God in each area of life. But often, we are not sure how to become this sort of alternative people."
That's an excerpt from Chapter 2 in Tish Harrison Warren's book Liturgy of the Ordinary. In this episode, Susan and Lindsey talk with their friend, Kristin, about the power of habits and why it's necessary to pay attention to the small ways we may be misaligning ourselves and bringing unnecessary burden into our lives.
