Practise makes… Practice

Problem:  Everyone (esp the Church) feeing under pressure to excel and be perfect at everything and never being free to be themselves (ie. not-that-great-but-trying-to-be-better) and thereby living in double guilt of failure and dishonesty/mask-wearing.

Solution:  Be a permanent practiser.  Practise until you can consider yourself 'in practise'; your life and community being a Disciple's Practice just like a Doctor's Practice.   If nothing else it'll teach you which word needs a C and which an S.  And once you've learned that, keep practising – achieving perfection is not required, and not going to happen anyway.
