Every Sunday at 4 PM in December we will explore and experience ancient spiritual practices. These practices – hesychasm, taize, lectio divina, etc. – aim to draw the practitioner closer to God. During the holiday season, these practices are especially pertinent as they also alleviate stress and anxiety, increase joy, and cultivate deeper presence and mindfulness. Each week we will explore a specific practice. All are welcome to join. The worship service will follow in the Meeting House at 5pm.
This series will be co-facilitated by Thomas Hughes and Jason Storbakken.
