    Spiritual practice: Look for Symbols of Christmas

    Sunday, December 16, 2012, 5:07 PM [General]

    As we approach Christmas Day, look for symbols which suggest to you how the presence of God takes on flesh today.   Can you find ways to honor these symbols?  Maybe take a picture, draw a picture, write a poem, or sing a carol.

    Peace and Blessings!

    Spiritual Practice: Set an Intention

    Sunday, December 9, 2012, 3:53 PM [General]

    In Luke’s Gospel, Zachariah, John the Baptist’s father, sings a song of praise. The church—especially in the monasteries—uses this song in daily morning prayer to set an expectation to see God’s revelation each day.

    Each morning this week, take a moment to set an expectation of what you hope to see, feel or experience during this day. Let your intention go. Throughout the day notice when your intention manifests.

    Peace and Blessings!

    Spiritual Practice: Watch with Wonder

    Sunday, December 2, 2012, 4:24 PM [General]

    Sometimes people complain about the busyness of these days leading up to Christmas.  Take a step back from the busyness and notice the energy behind it.  Feel the energy.  Can you let that excitement transform into expectation, expectation of God taking form around you, with you and in you?

     

    Peace and Blessings!

    Spiritual Practice: Living Kingdom Values

    Sunday, November 25, 2012, 3:45 PM [General]

    Consider some of the more challenging teachings of Jesus.  For example, Love your enemies; Sell your goods and give to the poor; Lose your life to gain your life.  You can add others to the list.


    As you go about your activities this week, notice where you or others apply or could apply Jesus’ values.

     

    Peace and Blessings!

    Spiritual practice: Live Confidently

    Sunday, November 18, 2012, 4:56 PM [General]

    You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, 'I lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along.' --Eleanor Roosevelt

     

    Make a list of five times in your life when you have overcome great obstacles.  For each even on your list ask yourself, what have I learned from that experience?  And how does that experience give me confidence for whatever happens in my future?

     

    Peace and Blessings!
