Spiritual Practice: A Way of Life

by Lifelong Learning Staff

In our fast paced, modern society, we barely have time to catch our breaths before moving on to the next task at hand. Yet in the rising Spirituality movement of our culture, we hear an emphasis on Sabbath, contemplation, and meditation. How is this possible? How does one find time and energy to engage spiritual practices in real, everyday life?

Jane Vennard explores this issue in her upcoming class, Spiritual Practice: A Way of Life, November 11-16, 2012, at CTS. Vennard and class participants will examine and experience many spiritual practices, both traditional and organic, available to us and to our congregations.

“We will play with intentional practice and spontaneous practice that together help us create a spiritual practice that becomes a way of life,” says Vennard.

“Many of us long to deepen our relationship with God and strengthen our spiritual lives,” continues Vennard. “By engaging in spiritual practices, we honor God’s presence and guidance and discover ways to bring our beliefs faithfully and authentically into the world.”

The week long course will be experiential and will include prayer, small groups, individual reflection, and silence, as well as presentations and discussion. For more information or to register, click HERE.
