We’re all on a journey. As we wade through the reality of our lives we’re trying to pay attention to ways of being and practices that we can intentionally integrate for the sake of being formed into Christ’s image.
In addition to many of the traditional practices God has used to shape the Christian family (like gathered worship, life together and Bible study) these practices have found fertile ground in the All Souls community:
God’s story is not detached from our lived experience. Through story telling and self knowing we pay attention to our lives, learning to embrace our whole selves, the ugly and admirable parts alike. Through knowing and telling our stories we find ourselves caught up in God’s story and continue the journey back to our true selves.
The Christian spiritual journey is always done for the sake of a greater purpose than ours. Serving others draws us out of our self-focus and shapes us into the self-giving image of Jesus. Join other All Souls folks serving our community
Cultivating “being” with God distinct from talking to God. These are practices focused on being present to God’s Spirit in you and in the world. We encourage engaging in this type of presence via ancient practices like walking a labyrinth and contemplative prayers as well as learning from our own experiences by telling our stories…
Take in God’s word so that it’s message becomes our vernacular. Read/study together with others; move beyond our own myopic interpretations.
