Way of the Spirit Online Mini-Course

Way of the Spirit Re-Envisioned

Intriguing opportunities are unfolding in challenging times, when we most need deep roots in the Holy. Since 2012, Way of the Spirit has offered residential retreats over an 18-month program cycle. With retreat centers closed into the foreseeable future, I’m thrilled to introduce a new Way of the Spirit format:

In 2020-2021, interactive online mini-courses will explore essential program themes. Each course will stand alone. You can attend any one, or continue through all the courses in a year. With a uniquely collaborative and experiential approach, we’ll build encouraging spiritual community over the miles.

Information Session to learn more about program content, meet the director, and ask questions. Online via Zoom videoconferencing:

Our Friend Stephen Matchett

A number of Bridge City and Multnomah Friends know Stephen Matchett of the San Francisco Meeting. He’s requesting prayers as he deals with a brain tumor. He’s been sharing updates and reflections about this serious and complex health challenge — in the midst of a pandemic, no less! — almost daily for the past month.
