Education and Spiritual Development

This ministry is committed to offering a variety of practices and programs to enhance our individual spiritual lives as well as our life together in community. The key offering is our practice of silent meditation, meeting every Monday afternoon at 4:30 pm, a practice we began over four years ago.  This is open to the greater peninsula and island community.

The following is a sampling of the ministry’s offerings over the past several years: facilitator presentations and discussions on the Old Testament, the Psalms, the Enneagram, Existentialism and Ethics.   Recent book groups have discussed:

Book of Joy by the Dalai Lama and Desmond Tutu

Life Together by Dietrich Bonhoeffer

Pilgrim Road: A Benedictine Journey Through Lent by Albert Holtz

The Return of the Prodigal Son by Henry Nowen

The Divine Dance by Richard Rohr

The Sabbath by Abraham Heschel

A series of two or three teaching and discussion sessions on the works of Thomas Merton is planned for summer 2019.
