How a practice-based faith can save us from drowning with Aaron Niequist

Have you ever felt like you were drowning? Not in the physical sense, but spiritually or emotionally–simply spent and burnt out on religion. 

Today’s guest, Aaron Niequist felt just that while serving as a worship pastor at a prominent megachurch in Chicago, IL. When the limits of his own faith experience left him feeling spiritually empty, Niequist determined God must have a wider vision for worship and community.

In his search, Aaron discovered that there was historical Christian precedent for enacting faith in a different way, an ancient and now future way of believing. He calls this third way “practice-based faith.”

In this newest episode we cover specific topics like…

  • How a practice-based faith can save you from drowning
  • Losing your religion and finding the Kingdom of God
  • How Sunday services are not the main event of our faith walk
  • Practical ways to practice your faith in your time with God

Aaron Niequist is a liturgist, writer, and pastor currently living in NYC. In 2018, he released The Eternal Current: How a Practice-Based Faith Can Save Us from Drowning, and he’s continuing to create resources to help us all flesh it out. But that’s just job stuff. The best part of his life is his wife Shauna, and his boys, Henry and Mac.
