Women's Spirituality Group - Journaling as a Spiritual Practice

Every other Tuesday Morning, 10:30 am – 12:30 pm; Feb 7-May 16, 2017 (8 sessions total)

In this season's Women's Spirituality Group, we'll explore and deepen the practice of journaling, using Christina Baldwin's book  Life's Companion:  Journal Writing as a Spiritual Practice as a guide.  Whether you consider yourself a seasoned journaler or are brand new to the practice, my hope is that this book and group will provide a life-giving way to introduce or build upon your own journal writing.  The group as always will offer safe and sacred space for women to show up and share their lives, whether that comes from a journal and the readings or not.  All women are welcome!

Labor Day Mini-Retreat - What is Mine to Do? What is Ours to Do?

Discernment is not a once-and-for-all vocational decision, but an ongoing practice of listening for God's invitations to us in each and every season of our lives.  In addition to what's going on in our personal lives, we also find ourselves in one of the most unusual, and critical seasons of our nation's life together.  What is God calling us to as individuals, as communities, as a nation?  In this mini-retreat, we'll have space for listening in prayer and reflection, and in small group conversation, to our hopes and fears, our passions and longings, to discern what God may be up to, even now, and how we might be a part of loving and healing the world with God.

Investment:  $40, includes lunch

For more information or to reserve your space, call or email Kimberly.

Theology on Tap: A New Way to Believe

Not sure what you believe about God, Jesus, or a holy host of other things?

Wondering if and how you fit into traditional religious organizations?

Restless for an authentic faith and life?

You are not alone.  I invite you to join me and others as we seek a new way to believe, belong, and practice our faith.  Drawing from a number of resources (with suggested readings if you want to dive deeper), we will consider a different theological question each gathering, engaging in dialogue about what we've learned and experienced, and discovering how we might think and speak in more congruent, life-giving ways that open us to a deepening sense of God's presence and movement in our lives.

The Enneagram for Couples: Relationship Renewal Workshop

We are created by God as relational beings.  Indeed our relationships have an enormous impact on how we experience ourselves, our lives, and the world around us.  That doesn’t mean creating and sustaining meaningful relationships is a simple matter.  They take time, practice, and sometimes just downright hard work to keep them alive and healthy.  But the more we understand ourselves and others with compassion, the more life-giving and satisfying our relationships will be.

The Enneagram is a rich and dynamic tool for deepening such understanding and compassion.  A centuries-old and now widely used system of self-understanding based on nine distinct but interrelated personality types, the Enneagram can provide a sort of map and resources for the ongoing work of tending our relationships.  It can show us why we behave the ways we do when we relate to others, highlighting both the gifts and challenges we bring to our relationships.  It can also reveal the significant differences between us, that may often lead to conflict, but can also be a source of great strength and creativity. 

In this workshops, couples will:

·      Receive an overview of the Enneagram system

·      Deepen their understanding of themselves and each other

·      Examine patterns of communication and conflict based on personality types

·      Practice active listening and mirroring

·      Learn ways to foster personal and relational growth

·      Renew their commitment to one another

The cost of $100 covers workshop facilitation and materials, lunch and refreshments for two.   To register, email or call Kimberly (kgbroerman@yahoo.com or 404-275-3328)  Space is limited to ten couples.  Participants must know their Enneagram types prior to the workshop; if you do not already know your type, you can schedule an individual ($50) or couple ($80) typing session with Kimberly.

Lenten Retreat - Clearing Space for God

Literally meaning springtime, Lent is a season for preparing the soil of our lives for the new life God intends for us.  It is a time to prayerfully reflect on our relationship with God, and what gets in the way, so that we can lovingly clear space.  

We invite you to clear a little space in your schedule for our Lenten retreat.  Come away to the peace and quiet of Amerson House for a time of prayer and reflection in the companioning presence of other seekers.  Through guided reflection with scripture and other sacred texts, a nourishing meal, meditative walking, journaling, creative expression, and silent meditation, you are invited to renew your relationship with God, with suggestions for ongoing soul tending during Lent.


Cost:  $40 ($15 for St. Bart’s members) - includes lunch
