Soul Feast: An Invitation to the Christian Spiritual Life by Marjorie Thompson
Facilitators: Mary Mikell and Betsy Irvine
Soul Feast is a book for seekers who wish to explore the riches of Christian spirituality. Marjorie Thompson offers a framework for understanding and nurturing classic spiritual disciplines such as prayer, fasting, spiritual reading, self-examination, worship, and hospitality. This best-selling devotional book has been used by both individuals and groups to deepen and expand their inner spiritual lives. We will finish Soul Feast and then move on to additional “soul-stirring” texts. This group is open to all-whether you read the text or not. Come for the talk and the fellowship.
Meeting Time: Thursdays at 11:30 a.m.
Starting August 29
Thirst: An Awakening
Facilitators: Lori Tucker and James Wilcox
Mary Oliver’s Thirst, a collection of poems, will provide a touchstone for our wide-ranging weekly discussions. The surprising ways grace manifests itself in our lives is just one of the themes we’ll explore in Oliver’s poetry. Each week we’ll have a chance to engage not only with personal responses to our favorite poems, books, and movies, but also with a deeper appreciation of the gifts of nature in our spiritual life.
Meeting Time: Sundays following the 11 a.m. service
UPC Library Starting September 15
Participants are welcome to bring their own lunch or a snack
