Spiritual formation is the process of transformation every Christian goes through. We will consider what this is, how it works, what it does, and where it will take us. Robert Mulholland will be our chief guide for the journey.
Praying the Psalms
Taught by Shira Gamey
Wednesday May 8, 2019, 7-9PM @ Eucharist Church
The Psalms are full to the brim with emotion, giving an honest reflection of the joys, sorrows, struggle, and pains of following the ways of God's Kingdom. In fact, about 1/3 of the Psalms are ones of lament and grieving. If you would like to learn how the psalms teach us to pray, and even encourage us to bring our honest disappointments to God, come join us for our practical workshop on Praying the Psalms.

The disciples said to Jesus, ‘Lord teach us to pray’. There is much to learn if we want to have an active, vibrant and consistent prayer life. Come and together we will discuss some of these practises.

The Bible is God the Father revealing to us his Son Jesus Christ, and we believe that in reading it God is 'doing work' on us to bring us into relationship with Jesus. Sounds great, but it is very hard! Using materials from "The Bible Project", let's look at ways of engaging the Bible (textual hyperlinks!) that we can use to captivate our interest and help in navigating it.
Silence & Solitude
Taught by Jill Trites
Wednesday May 29, 2019, 7-9PM @ Eucharist Church
Much of our faith and practice is about words--preaching, teaching, talking with others. Yet all of these words are not enough to take us into the real presence of God where we can hear his voice. Following in the example of Jesus, of Moses, and even of Paul, who saw times of withdrawal as key to their relationship with God, we will explore ways to use solitude and silence to hear what God is wanting to say to us.
