Missional discipleship as a way of life
Holy Habits is an adventure in discipleship based upon Luke’s picture of the early church in Acts 2:42–47. It explores the practice of ten disciplines that Luke presents in the passage: biblical teaching, fellowship, breaking bread, prayer, sharing resources, serving, eating together, gladness and generosity, worship and making more disciples. It is a way of life for all, from young children to those in residential care. It is also a way of life to be lived when followers of Jesus are both gathered as church and dispersed in day-to-day life at home, at work and in engagement with the issues of the world. The name reminds us that these are godly practices that form us not just as followers of Jesus but as wholesome human beings, both individually and in community.
