Dancing David & Disciplines that Surprise Us

Episode 59 | Faith in Practice | Released January 18, 2021 | Special guest: Rebekah Lyons

For the third week of our Faith in Practice series, bestselling author and speaker Rebekah Lyons returns to the podcast, just over a year to the date! She talks with Raechel and Amanda about the surprising spiritual discipline of celebration, which can include some fierce dancing (we see you King David). The three also discuss connections between the disciplines of worship, submission, and confession and how remembrance of God’s goodness shows up in each one. As they dive deep into their discussion, the common takeaway is this—the goal of these spiritual disciplines is not about checking boxes, but growing in our relationship with God.
