Spiritual Formation

Spiritual Learning

We believe that it is never to soon,
nor too late, to learn.


Ongoing Adult Opportunities    

Spiritual formation can sound like a big idea, but it is really the name for all the things we do to grow deeper in our faith.  What "forms" you as a person growing in the love and knowledge of God? Below are some resources for important pieces of spiritual formation. 
 

Prayer

Prayer is conversation with God. Like any good conversation, sometimes we need to just listen. Other times, it's our turn to tell our story, and yet others, for conversation.  Below are some resources you can find on the web. Check back again for books and local prayer opportunities.

 

Living into Hope:  Exploring Tools for Resilience
 
A Quiet Day for Men and Women from local Episcopal congregations
 
February 9, 2019 / 9:30-3:30   

At the Episcopal Church of the Epiphany

 

Too busy for a full weekend retreat?  Still feel the need to take a break to pray and reflect? The Revs. Melanie Donahoe, Hailey McKeefry-Delmas and Fran Tornquist invite you to give yourself the gift of some quiet time for reflection, inspiration, and conversation.  We will explore ways of living into hope even in hard times.  Participants can choose to enter into the topic through a selection of means, including music, stories, walking the labyrinth, art, writing, and discussion. It will be a chance to “pick your own adventure” from a variety of offerings to explore creative ways that people of faith can respond to the daily headlines.  Please invite a friend!  Coffee and light breakfast, as well as soup at lunchtime, will be provided. Please bring any other snacks or food you would like. Cost: $20 per person (financial assistance available as needed. Please email to reserve your space.
