We are pleased to announce that our new resource A Journey Into Wholeness: Soul Travel From Lent to Easter is now available for pre-order at a special price. E-book will also be available early February. This book is based on our popular Lenten guide A Journey into Wholeness but incorporates daily reflections, updated resources and weekly litanies.
Keith R. Anderson, D Min President , The Seattle School of Theology & Psychology says:
Devotional texts are often hard to take because they lack substance or range of thought or depth of writing. The title of this writing, A Journey into Wholeness, makes a bold claim. To offer daily reflections into wholeness will require substance, range, and depth, if it is to be richly whole itself. The readings in front of you now offer all of that in an accessible way.
Al Tizon, Co-president of Evangelicals for Social Action adds:
Journey is not spirituality for spirituality’s sake, as if to encourage some kind of evangelical-mystical navel-gazing. On the contrary, we’re invited to go deep within ourselves where Christ transforms us in order to become agents of transformation in a desperately needy world.”
We hope that you will join us on this exciting journey through Lent and Easter.
Create Your Best Life in 2014
Our first workshop at the Mustard Seed House in Seattle will be held this coming Saturday January 11th. In Creating Your Best Life for 2014, Tom Sine will challenge participants to develop a sense of calling for the year and encourage them to create a one year plan that integrates spiritual growth and creative new possibilities for their lives. We hope you can join us for this exciting event.
To create our best life for the entire year we need discipline and regular renewal. March 1st I will facilitate our pre-Lent retreat, Return to Our Senses in Lent and November 15th a pre-Advent retreat, Return to Our Senses in Advent. Like the retreats that Tom and I take several times a year, these days are designed to help all of us keep our lives focused on God’s purposes and not allow the secular culture to distract us. Without this type of intentionality we will never become the people God intends us to be.
An Integrated Series on Faith and Sustainability
Though each of our retreats and workshops are stand alone events, we are also drawing them together as an integrated series on sustainable faith and sustainable life. It is our desire to provide a year long process that moves us on a journey of discovery towards both a more sustainable life and a more sustainable faith.
|Our integrated series includes:|
We hope you will also save the date for our annual Celtic retreat August 8-10 on Camano Island. Our theme for this year is, St Brigit and the Hospitality of God. Come be inspired and renewed to create new possibilities for your life.
By the end of 2014 we expect that some of these events will also be available as online offerings so that those who do not live in the Seattle area can join us in the journey. We also expect to have a new Advent/Christmas resource available so that at the very least we can all journey together through the reflective seasons of Lent/Easter and Advent/Christmas.
On the Godspace and Mustard Seed blogs we will host several series on sustainable life and sustainable faith throughout the year. If you would like to become part of one of these blogging teams please contact us for more information.
Join Us For An Exciting Year
We have an exciting year ahead and welcome your participation. Above all we appreciate your prayer, encouragement and support.
