Advent Celebration on December 13th, 2015

By December 19, 2015Advent
The Chapel.


On Sunday night, December 13th, the Practice community gathered together for our first ever Advent Celebration. After a time of dessert, coffee, and gallons of egg nog — because nothing helps you prepare for contemplation like sugar and caffeine (ha!) — we entered the Willow chapel in holy expectation that Immanuel would guide us deeply into reverent reflection and joy-filled celebration. God did exactly that. Hallelujah.

Instead of retelling the experience, we decided to simply post the full recording and printed liturgy. Other than cutting out the 5 minutes of silence and 10 minutes of communion, it’s simply an unedited recording of what happened that night. We hope this helps you get a sense of the journey we went on…and even enables you to experience it too.

Grace and peace in this Advent season.

  • “The best ever” is something I say every time I leave The Practice. Just when I think God can’t be more faithful, more present, He comes a little closer and a little dearer to us. Thank you, Aaron and the entire Practice team, for offering us the time, space and permission to just be. I know you say that The Practice is not the main event, but some weeks, it truly is. Christmas blessings, Maisie

      We feel the same way, Maisie! God is everywhere and always working, of course, but Sunday nights have been such a beautiful way to “tune our hearts” to His nearness. Thanks for being a part of this journey. Blessings!

    Beginning my week with The Practice service has become an important component in my life. I look forward to the kick-off of the new season in 2016. A big thanks to everyone who has put in the hard work necessary to make it happen. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!!!

  • Y’all are so blessed to have a service like THE PRACTICE. Searching in TN!
