Wed., October 23- Spiritual Journey Group

We will be exploring the spiritual path more deeply, through listening to the stirrings of Spirit; while gaining insight into the presence and movement of God in our lives.  We will begin this group by delving into Joyce Rupp’s book “Open the Door: A Journey to the True Self”. We will explore how the image of the door can guide us in a process of discovering the true self. Joyce brings new life to the ageless spiritual image of the door, weaving insights from East and West with the wisdom of contemporary spiritual writers, poets, and novelists.  The book is structured as a daily prayer guide for everyday use over six weeks, each day offers a thematic reflection, a guided meditation, an original prayer, a thoughtful question, and a related scripture quote.  We will meet Wednesdays starting Oct 23 from 1:00-2:30 or 6:30-8pm. Due to the large response, Pastor Christina has added a second slot on Wednesdays. You may attend either one as it works for your schedule.
