We live in turbulent, unsettling times filled with political division and social unrest. How do we come together when things around us are falling apart? What is the best way forward when we are faced with political turmoil, a global pandemic, civil unrest, and spiritual wandering?
Rediscovering the Spirit is a three-week Lenten exploration of the critical spiritual principles we need to understand and embrace in order to find our way forward. Through this three-part study, participant will examine the nature of the inward-out movement and how to deal with our current social barriers. The class will be taught by Rev. Lowell Greathouse, using his recently-published book “Rediscovering the Spirit: From Political Brokenness to Spiritual Wholeness.” Greathouse, retired Mission and Ministries coordinator for the Oregon-Idaho Conference, will guide participants on how to rediscover and activate their spiritual lives through centering, framing, practicing, and learning how to live with others.
The class will be offered over three one-and-a-half hour Zoom sessions during Lent, beginning Wednesday, March 10 and continuing March 17 and March 24 from 7 to 8:30 p.m. Due to the interactive nature of the discussions, class size is limited to 25 participants. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to register. The deadline is March 5.
For the first class, Greathouse encourages participants to have read through chapter four. During the sessions, Greathouse said participants will “utilize several practical approaches to both analyze and experience the inward-out movement of the spirit that can help us address today’s social dysfunctions in spiritually renewing ways.”
