Praise for the Second Edition of Practicing Our Faith "Practicing Our Faith is more than a book; it outlines a movement—God's movement—that is both as old as Abraham and as new as today's emerging Christianity. Here is a way to live the abundant life that is good news for our neighbors, sweet rest for our souls, and hope for a church too long fragmented by division. Like the preachers of the last great awakening, I want to shout, 'Get on board!'" —Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove, new monastic, author, speaker (www.jonathanwilsonhartgrove.com) Praise for the First Edition of Practicing Our Faith "Deceptively simple and down-to-earth, these authors provide potent surprises. Dorothy Bass's observation that 'slaves cannot take a day off but free people can' startled me into a new comprehension of the workaholism that permeates American culture. Practicing Our Faith strikes me as a book as wise as grandparents, a good guide to living within our families and communities with integrity and generosity." —Kathleen Norris, author of The Cloister Walk and Acedia and Me: A Marriage, Monks, and a Writer's Life "Practicing Our Faith is a book written by a remarkable community of people—remarkable not only because it includes some of the most insightful Christian voices of our time, but because its members prayed and talked and worked together to create this volume, modeling the way the church is meant to do its work. . . . Practicing Our Faith is a book that should be widely read, and more: it should be put into action." —Parker Palmer, author of A Hidden Wholeness, Let Your Life Speak, and The Courage to Teach Visit www.practicingourfaith.org for more information and resources on the Practices of Faith.
