Thursday Mornings 9:15-11:00 AM at Rachel Blazer’s Home- 124A Old Farms Road, Simsbury, CT 06070. 12+ weeks beginning September 14.
Format: personal study and practice with small group discussion. Cost is $20- book provided.
Have you picked up the Bible looking for encouragement, only to feel more distant from the God it speaks of? Have you listened to someone else’s passionate prayer and longed for the kind of closeness they seem to have with God?
Busyness, numbness, and so many other things get in-between us and experiencing nearness with Christ. The good news is that God has given us very simple tools that will help us experience His presence in the ordinary everyday moments of our lives. These are the tried-and-true tools used by the Church for thousands of years to draw near to God and experience the full, abundant life He calls us to. It’s when we choose these things that we experience Him, and when we do that, everything changes.
This study is intended to be immensely practical. The spiritual disciplines are where theology meets everyday life, but only you can put them into practice in your life. Our hope is that you will try each of the twelve disciplines we’ll cover. The spiritual disciplines aren’t meant to simply be studied. They are meant to be done. Their power is in their practice.
