Spirituality

 

There are many ways to feed your spirit and your faith...

 

Here are some options to consider:

 

Online:

 An Online Weekly Podcast, Into the Mystic by UCC President , John Dorhauer.

So that "the art and practice of spiritual reflection is modeled as a priority and not just a part-time avocation."

 

 

January Adventure Audio Recordings

January Adventure is a long-standing conference on emerging Christianity for laity and clergy based on St. Simons Island, GA.

They have recordings from past sessions of their nationally known speakers. LINK

 

Spiritual Direction

Spiritual direction is the practice of being with people as they attempt to deepen their relationship with the divine, or to learn and grow in their own personal spirituality. The person seeking direction shares stories of his or her encounters of the divine, or how he or she is experiencing spiritual issues.


Some Spiritual Directors in our area:
