Spiritual Formation, Fall 2023 & Winter 2024

Spiritual Practice Sampler

Third Saturdays
10:30 a.m.–noon

Ages; Adults; Youth 14+ welcome

Are you looking for new spiritual practices? Perhaps you’ve tried something on your own, but you’d like to practice in community. Spiritual Practice Sampler offers time to learn, practice, and reflect on your experience. Each session will also include suggestions for how you could continue the practice at home.

The practice will vary each month, but throughout the year we will explore lectio divina, labyrinths, meditation, breath prayer, and more. Whether it’s a new practice for you or one you’ve known for a long time, you are welcome to join.

The practice for October is imaginative prayer, a way of encountering God through our imagination and a sacred text. You might be interested in this if you’ve wanted to learn to pray with scripture or if other forms of prayer or meditation haven’t clicked with you. No registration is required. Please email Madeline with any questions.

Next session

Saturday, Jan. 20

Meditation can seem mysterious, and it often comes with uncertainty about whether we’re “doing it right.” Join us Saturday, January 20th, for an introduction to meditation—we’ll talk about how meditation varies by religious tradition, learn some methods to settle our attention, and address some misconceptions.
