I have been thinking about what it means if we are to Pray with out ceasing and to live our life as a life of worship, and what implications this has for our construction or paradigm of church? Does it mean our paradigm is way too small?

Do we need to re-frame to “live your life as life of church or church without ceasing?

I have been doing some thinking how/what this could look like but before I discuss this I wanted to do some more thinking hence the above questions so any thoughts appreciated.The Last Days of Disco movie

  1. yes, our paradigm is way too small.
    yes, i think that ‘being’ church ‘should’ be an on-going thing… although I guess we can’t all spend all the time with other christians, but surely a couple of hours on a sunday and perhaps some other time mid-week (if we’re lucky) is a bit poor?!

  2. First time I’ve commented here. This entry made me think of a quote from the book “Red Moon Rising” (the story of how the 24-7 prayer movement began) which spoke to me alot as it contrasts some evangelical views (my current denomination) and I go to Taize every year in which I find is a space to do this.

    “In the contemplative traditions,… prayer is not primarly about changing things out there. It is first and foremost about changing something ‘in here’ and he patted his chest. The most powerful thing that can happen in the place of prayer is that you yourself become the prayer. You leave the prayer room as Jesus’ hands and feet on earth. This is what it means to pray continually; to see with the eyes of Jesus and hear with his ears every waking moment.”

    What do you think?
