"Traveling Well"

 

Diane Meade, MAR is facilitating a study inspired by Rev. Dr. Kirk Byron Jones - - "Traveling Well: Our Spiritual Journey."

 

"Traveling Well" focuses on the quiet time we have listening to our soul and acting on those inspirations. During the 45-60 minute session, participants can share their journal entries, how they responded to the soul's revelations. 

 

The program dates are February 24 and March 3 and will resume after Easter, meeting monthly thereafter. 

 

Some of the topics for creating and continuing meaningful conversations:

     1. Be Still. 

     2. Lay Burdens Down. 

     3. Listen Deeply.

     4. Don't Run Away. 

     5. Be Honest. 

     6. Be Gentle. 

     7. Welcome New Truth.                                                  

 

A limited number of copies of Dr. Jones' book Soul Talk are available (or can be purchased from Amazon at the extraordinarily reasonable price of $7.99). 


Additionally, there are blank journals available for participants. 

You are invited to join Diane as we share our stories of Traveling Well.
