Spiritual Practices in a Time of Waiting

Beginning April 11, Adult CE will be welcoming Rev. Marylen Marty-Gentile for a four week session on spiritual practices.   There are many ways to connect with God, to deepen our relationship with the Holy. For many of us, finding a practice and getting started are stumbling blocks. This four-week class was going to use Advent as a place to begin, but lockdowns and Covid and uncertainty got in the way of even this. So we begin in this Easter moment, a time of new beginnings. In these weeks we will explore:

  • Right in Front of our Eyes: Noticing Here and Now

  • In the Beginning: Creating as Does the Creator

  • Incarnation: Honoring the Body

  • Blessings: Sharing Holy Words

Each session will include word, experience, and silence.
