Ascension’s Virtual Library of Faith Practices in the Home
Posted on March 21, 2020 | Posted by Mary Stoneback
Welcome! Over the next few weeks, we will gather virtually for worship, Bible study, conversations and prayer. In this time of distancing, we have an opportunity to practice the things that connect us with Christ and with one another. This page is dedicated to sharing the ways you are practicing caring conversations in your homes, with loved ones and friends. We will learn about each other’s favorite devotional practices and what rituals and traditions provide a sense of familiarity, especially in unknown times. Finally, we will share stories of hospitality and how we find creative and meaningful ways to serve each other and our neighbors.
In this season of Lent, we remember although we walk through the wilderness to Holy Week, the tomb is not the end for Christ. And after this time of physical distancing ends, and it will end, we will continue to gather and do the practices that enable us to live with meaning and purpose in a world that has changed so radically.
Creating a Holy Space
Taking off our shoes for the places we stand is holy ground. (Exodus 3:5)
Consider setting up a place to worship in your home over these next few weeks; at your tables, the living room, or in a favorite chair. Light a candle, grab your Bible, pull up a chair. How will you join in prayer and worship with your brothers and sisters in Christ from your home? Share pictures of your holy space.
