Week 7: Heart
This daily post is designed to help you live into our New Room Society covenant of practicing daily prayer together. Below is today’s daily practice. If you missed the overview on day one, visit Week 7: Heart.
Saturday: Rituals (sets of actions) and Liturgies (sets of actions designed to rightly form your heart)
Any ritual can be directed toward or away from God. Consider the ritual of going shopping at the mall, for example, as contrasted with that of kneeling for prayer.
In your journal or meditation time, reflect on your most frequent daily rituals. Making coffee, spending time in silence, fixing dinner, or waiting in the carpool line to pick up a child…
How are your most frequent and regular rituals connected (or not connected) to the hungers of your heart? Can any of your rituals become more like liturgies? How might you shift some of your daily rituals to more rightly form your heart?
