Event Details

How is our spiritual connection to God damaged when we fail to show hospitality to others? Are there ways we inadvertently practice or condone hostility? What are some small steps we can take toward hospitality ? How does "Holy Spirit hospitality" differ from customary courtesies? What spiritual practices foster God’s transformation in us? Using Henri Nouwen’s book "Reaching Out: The Three Movements of the Spiritual Life" as our reference point, we will explore his second ‘movement’ toward a deeper spiritual life — moving from hostility toward others to hospitality toward others. There will be reflections, readings and posting most of the days of the class. Courses for the first and third spiritual movements of Nouwen’s spiritual journey are also available this Lent. This class is preceded by Loneliness to Solitude, on personal spirituality, and will be followed by Illusion to Prayer, on our relationship with God. A discount of $15 is available if you sign up for all three. We would love to have you journey with us through all six weeks of Lent. You will need a copy of Nouwen’s "Reaching Out" for this course. This course is eligible for 1.0 CEU. Price: $30
