Lynne covers six spiritual practices that congregations and small groups can engage in together:
- contemplative prayer
- lectio divina
- Sabbath keeping
Marva Dawn says...
"Baab exuberantly, and realistically, displays the way spiritual practices can strengthen groups or whole congregations of Christians. Her illustrations are convincing; her experiences, vast and confirming; her explanations, constructive. I heartily urge every Christian to read this book, significant as it is, because we who respond to the Trinity with practices need to learn to live more as a community!" Marva Dawn, Theologian, author of Keeping the Sabbath Wholly and Unfettered Hope

A group of thirty-somethings who had been in a high school youth group together. Their stories weave a tapestry that Lena is able to untangle with perception and insight.
