The Habits of Faith

The Habits of Faith is a four week study that combines spiritual disciplines (daily prayer, weekly worship, monthly service and yearly generosity) with insights from habits research to help people develop better faith habits to support their spiritual life.  The study can be done individually through the book and online guides or in a small group at Wayne Presbyterian taught by one of the pastors.  The class is strongly recommended for all new members--or for anyone curious about how to make prayer, worship, service or generosity a larger part of their life. 

The Book

This 90 page workbook provides a template for developing spiritual habits that can last a lifetime.  Systematically working through the book over a month, while using  the online prayer guides to supplement the experience, readers will learn four different types of prayer (Ignatian scriptural meditation, Centering Prayer, Lectio Divina, and the ACTS prayer) in about ten minutes a day.  Additionally, chapters on why and how we worship, serve and give provide potential Cue-Routine-Reward cycles to understand how to engage our brain in the development of these healthy habits.
