Join Joshua Banner, spiritual director and creator of The Invitation podcast for Contemplative Prayer and Spiritual Practices in the Local Church Workshop. During this workshop, we will explore ...
... How can deeper spiritual practices fit into the local church?
... Should they support and nourish the church? How and to what extent?
... Where can pastors and lay leaders begin?
These sessions will be a large, ministry workshop where participants discern and begin to create new ministry initiatives in contemplative spirituality in their respective worshipping communities. We will consider applications such as Lectio Divina for small groups, small group contemplative listening, church day retreats, and more.
