4:00 p.m. - 22. Spiritual Practice for Busy People

Friday, November 3 at 4:00 p.m.
General

Do you ever find yourself busier than you want to be? Do you ever feel as if you need more time? Not just to get more done, but to get more in touch with yourself and with God, to take time for rest and re-creation?

This seminar explores spiritual practice for busy people--with time to pause, to reflect on Scripture, to be refreshed in the form of a sacred pause. Personal stories and practical tips round out this seminar to help you find sacred pauses in the midst of daily life.

Some of this material will be drawn from Sacred Pauses: Spiritual Practices for Personal Renewal which will be available for purchase along with other titles.
