Reply To: Are there elements of ancient and/or modern Near Eastern Christianity that are present in your own church/faith life? If so, what are they? If not, would you be open to implementing any?

Thanks, Michelle, for sharing your thoughts on elements of Near Eastern Christianity that intrigued you! I thought it was interesting you mentioned the element of a worship experience set apart from ordinary life. It reminded me of the importance of Shabbat in Judaism and the emphasis of ceasing from ordinary work to refocus on God. Sometimes, it can be easy to treat church as just another weekly activity instead of a special time to meet with God and recharge for the rhythms of day-to-day life.
