Pastor Newton Teaching Week-long Seminar

Pastor Christy Newton has invited our congregation to participate in a new week-long course that she will be offering through the Pacific School of Religion, starting Tuesday.  It is open to interested lay people from all traditions, as well as ministers and ministers-in-training. 

The class is titled "Wells of Living Water: Spiritual Practices for the Journey of Life" and runs from February 4-11.  It will start with an opening live seminar on Tuesday, February 4, from 6-7:30 pm, and conclude with a closing seminar one week later with the interim section of the class being self-paced.  The cost of the seminar is $120 for CTEL certificate students and PSR students / $200 for the general public.

The course description reads, "All around us, there are messages of scarcity that claim there is simply not enough. Not enough time, energy, or money. Not enough creativity, intelligence, beauty, hope, wonder… Not enough to share.  These messages deplete our spirits on multiple levels and leave many of us as faith leaders trying to quench our spiritual thirsts with the dust of dry wells. This course will introduce a selection of spiritual practices capable of replenishing dry wells and quenching the deep spiritual thirsts of individuals and communities of faith. Students will engage in experiential spiritual practices and critical reflection on those practices. Together we will explore why certain spiritual practices resonate with us and how these spiritual practices might be incorporated into the life of a community of faith."
