What are the things you do without even thinking about it?
Really, when it comes down to it, we’re all just a bundle of habits.
If our habits make us who we are, then what do your habits say about who you are becoming?
We want to hold a conversation around forming habits that help us follow Jesus.
Welcome to the inhabit podcast.
Prayer as Relationship & Creativity with Olivia Wolfe
We chat to our good friend Olivia Wolfe about her experiences of prayer as relationship and her creative practices. Olivia shares about the blurred lines between praying, journaling and writing poetry and gives some great insights into how you can develop these practices in your own life.
Practice #4: Walking the Neighbourhood in Prayer
Benj has walked past and prayed for every house in Long Jetty. Barefoot. What a boss.
You don't have to start with a challenge at that level, but in this episode we explore how powerful it can be walking the neighbourhood in prayer.
Practice #3: Getting Liturgical with Common Prayer
In this episode we explore liturgical prayer through the book 'Common Prayer: a Liturgy for Radicals'.
We talk about the power that can be found in written prayers developed for specific occasions, and the helpful place liturgy can have in developing our prayer life.

Practice #2: Our Father
"Jesus, teach us how to pray." This week, we explore the OG prayer, straight from the mouth of Jesus himself, AKA the Lord's Prayer AKA the Our Father AKA the hexagon. Ok, so you may not have heard it referred to as a hexagon. Listen to the episode and find out why we do. Discover the incredible yet simple model this prayer gives us which can be used uniquely in your context.
This model comes from Mike Breen and the 3DM team. Check out the book 'Building a Discipling Culture' if you are interested in learning more.
Practice #1: Circle Prayer
We've been speaking about prayer - but our desire is to help you pray. So, for the rest of this season, we're going to be releasing mini episodes like this one as resources to help you experiment with new ways to pray. In this one, Benj shares something he's personally found really helpful: 'circle prayer'. Listen in to learn how it works, then give it a go and let us know how you find it!

Obstacles in prayer (practical)
Full disclosure, at the beginning of this episode we got distracted and followed some banter-iffic rabbit trails. BUT, that kind of illustrates one of the points at the heart of this episode. We are highly distractable beings. And we're busy. And we get bored. And these are just some of the practical obstacles we face when we are trying to develop a prayer habit. In this episode we have a conversation about these practical obstacles, and how we can begin to overcome them and get some skin in the prayer game.
A great listen even if you’re not officially religious.
A great podcast if you’re into philosophical thinking — not just for specifically Christian listeners. Something for everyone.
Solid content, great hearts!
Only part way through, but these guys are awesome… Benj and Will do a great job of walking us through meaningful spiritual rhythms in an engaging and intelligent way. Huge fan of their work, highly recommend having a listen.
Benj is my ultimate pastor crush and Will has a nice beard. I've never seen Will before but I can tell by his voice. Maybe Benj should grow a beard? I've never seen Benj before but I can tell by his voice he hasn't got a beard right now. I ❤️ Inhabit forever.
Two young driven and passionate pastors that speak so much relevance and wisdom for those that tune in. As a fellow young pastor it has been so uplifting and convicting to hear these guys shed light on so many fitting topics that the organised church and “non church” listeners could benefit from
