SINGLE DAY AND EVENING PROGRAMS

IN PURSUIT OF PAUL
No one in the New Testament is more real, more maddening or more complex than Paul of Tarsus. Tie on your sandals as we attempt to journey with him to some of the great cities of the Roman Empire with his message of the Good News drawn from his letters and from the Acts of the Apostles.

SPIRITUALITY FOR WOMEN
Joyce Rupp does it again in her new book Boundless Compassion. Rupp speaks of compassion as ‘full immersion in the condition of being human.’ Then she shows the way. The book has been called “a master class in love.” Join our circle once more as we begin the journey.

SPIRITUALITY FOR MEN
Brother David Steindl-Rast calls us to our senses again. Our holy senses. In A Listening Heart, he demonstrates how our senses are indeed gateways to Spirit and not obstacles to Spirit, as some have suggested. Let’s read this book together and share our insights and graces.

DAYS ON GRIEVING AND LOSS
All of us experience loss and grief in our lifetimes. Can we grow through and with the grieving process? What will help us? What deters us? Join us as we search for answers from writers like C.S. Lewis, Joyce Rupp, and the Psalmist. The grief experience is unique and different for each of us and yet, it is a universal experience for humans. Be with us as we listen to each other in the quiet and the sharing.
Jane Claffy, MSN

*SPIRITUAL SPA DAY FOR WOMEN
We know now how important it is to take better care of our bodies, but how often do we take time out from our busy lives to care for our souls? Come spend a day relaxing, praying, reflecting, sharing and exploring the quality of your inner life in a contemplative, prayerful setting. Experience the gracious care of our creating God.
The day will include some input and spiritual sharing; with the possibility of spiritual direction, yoga, stretching, massage therapy and/or reflexology, and use of outdoor labyrinth.
We are offering an overnight experience in May for those who wish some extra time!
