Soul Matters Discussion Group (20s/30s/40s)

Especially for those in their 20s and 30s or not far from it.

“The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and science. They to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead: Their eyes are closed.”   by  Albert Einstein

What mystery is most beautiful to you? How can we keep awe from becoming a stranger? Awe is the source of art, science, and theological questions.  To connect with the mysterious is to connect with the holy, whatever that means to you.  We need to be intentional about embracing this life of awe and wonder; we need to be intentional about connecting with that mysterious infinite. 

Awe is our worship theme for December, and the theme for our small groups. These small groups are special because they allow each member to deeply engage with the topic in multiple ways.  In preparation for each month’s Small Group, I will send each group member a packet. You are invited to select from this packet one spiritual exercise and one question to reflect on before our meeting together.  While reviewing the packet ahead of time is a great way to prepare for group, please do not let a busy schedule deter you from participating. Whatever amount of time you are able to dedicate to preparation is just the right amount of time!

I ask that you sign up ahead of time.  Please use the link below.  Please provide me your email address so that I can send you the packet for you to review. If the slot that you can attend is full, just let me know. We have opened our small groups to the public to share our gifts with the community. Feel free to invite friends.  I am excited to explore the topic of Awe with you!

We now have a special offering for folks who are in their 20s, 30s, and 40s!
