#30 - James K. A. Smith on the Spiritual Practice of Habit
We chat with JT English about our vision for theological education and The Village Church Institute and then talk with James K. A. Smith about liturgy, formation and Smith’s new book, You Are What You Love. And to wrap up, we do some #AskTVC.
The Village Church
The conversation covers everything from what it looks like for a Southern Baptist Church like ours to have a biblical, gospel-centered liturgy to the role of technologies and innovations in discipleship to the ways our personal habits and cultural practices shape us day in and day out. And to wrap up, they answer the following questions for #AskTVC:
- I have an engaged friend living in sin with her fiancée; how do I lovingly let her know this is not what believers do?
- To deny the deity of Christ is to completely reject the gospel, right?
- How should we, as New Testament believers, apply Old Testament promises of material prosperity to our lives? Are they even relevant for today, or were they only for the ancient nation of Israel?
