Episode 23 | Formation and Habit with Tish Harrison Warren

Formation and Habit with Tish Harrison Warren

In our first Lenten podcast, we’re turning to author and Anglican priest Tish Harrison Warren to help us frame our thinking about how we’re formed spiritually and the ultimate goal of our formation in our lives. Tish helps make us conscious of the habits, practices, and liturgies that are present and forming us in our everyday lives.

Practices are a Response to Love

She does a beautiful job of recasting spiritual disciplines not as an effort to make ourselves worthy of God’s love, but as a response to God’s declaration that we are already his beloved. We hope this conversation inspires you to consider anew the formative power of your habits, and to join us weekly in exploring spiritual disciplines, not out of obligation, but out of a deep and growing sense of your own belovedness before God.
