Are you feeling ground down by the relentless stream of negative news cycles and demonizing social media drama? Already dreading the next election cycle? Do the words "exhausted, demoralized, hurting, downhearted, or just done" describe you sometimes?
Spiritual disciplines are the means by which God sustains and feeds our souls so that we can embody the relentless in-breaking of God's justice, mercy, love and grace in a world that often feels unjust, merciless, unloving and graceless. In this class, we will explore lesser-know disciplines such as simplicity and celebrating, and breathe fresh life into well-worn practices such as prayer, meditation, and study. Each class will include a "practice time" component for us to experience our spiritual practice together as well as discussion and readings from the book A Celebration of Discipline by Richard Foster.
