Book description
Live like a Christian every day.

In the Wesleyan tradition, we believe that Christian formation happens best “when two or more are gathered.” So the focus is the body of Christ gathered--worshiping, sharing, learning, fellowshipping, taking Holy Communion, and doing works of piety and charity--together. In addition, a relationship with God is not primarily an individual’s lonely personal quest for transcendence. It is not about becoming more self-centered or more self-focused, it is about becoming more self-forgetful.

The book outlines individual and congregational practices that transform through learning and loving, fellowshipping and worshiping, by being lifted up in spirit and being enlightened in mind. A Christian life needs balance not only between work, rest, play but also between worship, sacraments, doing, and learning. It needs balance between being alone with God and spending time with significant others.
