TBA

"How is it with your soul?" All are welcome into Anam Cara Soul Care group, held the first Monday of each month at 7 p.m. (generally in the conference room). This group comes together for contemplative fellowship and to learn about and engage in a spiritual practice.
 

How is it with your soul? Anam Cara Soul Care group's next meeting is Monday, September 16 at 7 p.m. in the conference room. We will be engaging in the spiritual practice of Visio Divina, or "Holy

 

 

 

Seeing". This small group is a space of intentional pause and reflection to come together and cultivate disciplines that bring us closer to God. All are welcome

The earliest Methodist gatherings would begin exploring this question among believers in small groups. It is one still worth asking on a regular basis today in our life of faith. Anam Cara Soul Care Group will resume meeting on Monday, August 5 and will be exploring the spiritual practice of mindful eating, focusing on the connection between our bodies and our faith. All are welcome in this peaceful space of intentional spiritual formation. Contact Rev. Beth with questions. beth@thepumpkinchurch.org
