We are hard-wired to be in relationship with God- that means we are called to open ourselves up to the presence of God and to find God in our everyday lives. Come and join our book group on Wednesday evenings as we explore this path together.
This is an opportunity to deepen your spirituality with others as we explore this book by Bruce Epperly. Each week we will focus on one or more mystics from a variety of spirituality traditions. During the upcoming session, we will explore the spirituality of Howard Thurman, who is described by others as a Black Pilgrim. Born in the deep south, Thurman experienced on a daily basis segregation, prejudice, and second-class status. Thurman’s spirituality involved discovering a quiet center from which self-affirmation emerged. He found the encounter with a personal and loving God ultimately more powerful than a social order determined to maintain his inferiority.
Join us for this conversation about the interaction of contemplation and action through the eyes of the mystic, Howard Thurman.
Our book group discussion will focus on what stood out for each one of us as well as an exploration of the ways to practice each form of mysticism as highlighted in the chapters to be discussed that evening.
