Composing a Jazz-Shaped Faith: We are Practicing Christians (p1)

posted by Robert Gelinas

FTGPicture1.jpgComposing a jazz-shaped faith is about practicing Christianity.  When a musician takes the stage practice is assumed.  A basic understanding of one’s instrument, music, standards and the essence of jazz are all necessary (and expected) in order for concert to be experienced.

How would this change the way we view what it means to be a Christian?  Or perhaps a better question, if practice was assumed in the Christian faith what would we expect from each other?
Feel free to join the groove…

If practice was assumed in the Christian faith, I, for one, would expect love from other Christians. Love in the face of adversity, love even though it’s hard, love when we’ve been wronged. The love would be assumed as the motivator for actions like forgiveness, patience, and kindness.

Well, with Jesus as our teacher and the Bible as our guide through this thing we call life, then isn’t it that we should be practicing, at the very least, loving the Lord our God with all our heart, soul, and mind… and loving our neighbors as ourselves…
