Seeking Shalom: Reflection and Practice for Living the Gospel of Jesus: Part 2 (online)

Session 2: The Inner Self in the Outer World
Jesus makes clear that the authenticity of how we walk in the world emerges from what is being nurtured within us. Come reflect on the internal postures and spiritual practices that help us to open ourselves to the work of the Holy Spirit in cultivating an inner shalom that bears fruit in our everyday lives.
The Lenten season invites us into a period of deep reflection—not only on the life and passion of Jesus Christ, but also how we are called to be transformed and transforming as the Body of Christ in this world—agents and emissaries of God’s shalom. Join with us to explore and reflect upon what it means for us to not only hear but live the “good news.” Participants will have the opportunity to engage in individual and group/small group reflection, as well as actively exploring supportive spiritual practices and taking steps to shape (or perhaps reshape) a rule of life that helps them to more fully “live” the Gospel of Jesus.
