About the Spiritual Gateways Series
During the fourth century, the Greek philosopher Diogenes famously announced, “I am a citizen of the world.” Now, on our interconnected globe, our daily lives are affected by the countries around us; our morality has always been shaped by love’s dictate to understand and befriend the stranger. In recognition of the rich religious teachings and traditions which emanate not only from the Middle East but find beginnings in Asia and the spiritual landscape of indigenous peoples, Growing Edge Resources seeks to expand our knowledge and spiritual horizons with this new workshop series.
Session 1: Acknowledging God’s Presence and Our Divine Purposes
January 29, 2022 $75 /$60 when you attend all workshops
We begin at the beginning, with the author of all creation, as we simultaneously consider our present predicaments. Life in this century moves fast, and before we know it, the day, week, month, year is over. Responsibilities to work and family fill a large amount of our time. To acknowledge God’s presence and the reason each of us was created forces us to slow down and examine ourselves, to live more intentional and spiritually deeper lives. Expect knowledge, reflection and practices to encompass spiritual wisdom from around the world.
Session 2: Sacred Wisdom Texts – Panning for Spiritual Gold
March 26, 2022 $75 /$60 when you attend all workshops
In addition to the Bible, what can other sacred wisdom texts such as the Vedas and the Qur’an teach us about living a spiritually authentic and worshipful existence? How do Taoists and indigenous peoples live in harmony with the world they occupy?
Session 3: Prayer and Song – The Privilege of an Intimate Connection with the Divine
May 21, 2022 $75 /$60 when you attend all workshops
Expect a lively and varied experience! A gifted musician or two will bring divine music into this session and discuss their individual musical and spiritual disciplines. Pastor Scott Wagoner will share his knowledge of prayer and contemplative practices: all ways to lift our praise and concerns to the Holy Spirit.
Session 4: Aligning Our Lives – On Speaking and Living in Accordance with the Divine
June 11, 2022 $75 /$60 when you attend all workshops
The workshop series concludes with assimilating our gathered knowledge and life wisdom, sewing it into a garment we can wear each day as we seek to co-create God’s beloved community.
Wish to attend all four workshops? Save $60! The total price is $240.
