Spiritual Awakening

Dear friends,

butler2Our six-week study of Christianity After Religion: The End of Church and the Beginning of a New Spiritual Awakening by Rev. Dr. Diana Butler Bass ends Wednesday evening this week.

Although the book discussion comes to an end, the conversation continues. The Spiritual Awakening has already begun and we are invited to participate!

Dr. Butler Bass gives us some suggestions:
1. prepare by reading and learning holy texts in new ways
2. engage in two new practices of faith (one inner and one outer)
3. have fun
4. participate in making change.

It is up to us to move with the Spirit instead of against it, to participate in making our world more human just and loving.”

YOU are invited to join the conversation this week: Wednesday, June 15 at 6:00 p.m. in the Fireside Room for food, conversation and the beginning of our spiritual awakening.  Can’t make the meeting? Contact [email protected]

Peace be with you.
