Animate: Practices
With Brian McLaren, Sara Miles, Mike Slaughter, Phyllis Tickle, Shane Claiborne, Enuma Okoro, and Doug Pagitt

About the Resource

Animate: Practices is a seven-session adult introduction to the central practices of the Christian faith. Sessions feature perspectives from Christian thought leaders on topics such as prayer, worship, money, service, and community. Built on centrist Protestant theology, it's not too liberal or too conservative. The sessions are thoughtful, edgy, and present interesting ideas.

How It Works

In each Animate: Practices session, the group will watch a video featuring a leading voice from the Christian faith, spend time on personal reflection and journaling, and share ideas with the group. The order of the session is up to you and what works best for your group. Session resources are available as a complete curriculum or a la carte
