Living Practices: Wednesdays January 10th and 17th

Join us as we learn and experience spiritual practices that will draw us closer to Jesus and enable us to live extraordinary lives. SIGN UP HERE

January 10th Classes Offered:

  • Creative Journaling: Come and explore different ways to freely express your heart to God through journaling, scribbling, diagraming, doodles and more. God loves hearing the heart of His children and it's sometimes easy to feel stuck and not 'feel like you're doing it right.' Come and enjoy a safe environment full of encouragement to dive into various avenues of getting to know yourself and God more. Taught by Cara Lutes.
  • Imaginative Contemplation with the Scriptures: Contemplating a Gospel scene is not simply remembering it or going back in time. Through the act of contemplation, the Holy Spirit makes present a mystery of Jesus' life in a way that is meaningful for you now. Use your imagination to dig deeper into the story so that God may communicate with you in a personal way. Taught by Kevin Blocher.
  • Centering Prayer: Join us as we learn about Centering Prayer - a kind of prayer-of-surrender - and engage the practice together.  Our guide - Eric Nicolaysen - committed to learning about and practicing centering prayer before he had any idea what it was (and actually was wrong in his assumptions about it).  Now - three years later - it's become a vital part of his growing life with God.  Come and learn together - no experts in this, only folks eager for deeper communion with God.
  • Daily Examen: Ever find your mind going a 100 mph and you could use a pause to enjoy the present? Do you find it hard to answer the question, "So where's God loving you lately?" The Daily Examen is a helpful tool in becoming aware of God, yourself, and your world. It is a simple practice that guides you in engaging with the present - God's gift to you. Taught by Becky Waugaman.
