SpiritStudyLiving a life of meaning and spiritual depth takes more than reading books about religion and spirituality. It requires intention, reflection, and a commitment to praxis. Praxis is the process of practicing what one is learning.

Spirit Study is a 10-month invitation to learning, practice, and reflection. Our 2020-21 study topic is Healing Trauma, informed by the book My Grandmother’s Hands: Racialized Trauma and the Pathway to Mending Our Hearts and Bodies by Resmaa Menakem.

Our study year runs from September 2020 through June 2021. Each month you are invited to listen to the monthly sermon and reflect on the month’s topic.
