Faith Awakenings

Faith Awakenings

“There isn't anything except your own life that can be used as ground for your spiritual practice. Spiritual practice is your life, twenty-four hours a day.”  ~Pema Chodron

Our faith tradition is founded in the concept of bringing unity out of diversity.  And one of the greatest places of diversity is in the realm of Spiritual Practices.  It is as rich and varied as each human personality.  The “Tree of Contemplative Practice” on this page gives a hint at some of the diversity of practices that can bring our souls into a deeper loving compassionate relationship with our selves, with others and, particularly, with God. 

This webpage is an attempt to invite crowdsourcing into our resourcing of churches and individuals who are seeking to expand their spiritual practices. 

We’ll be using blogs to begin to share some approaches and links that folks have found particularly meaningful. 

We invite you to add practices that you have appreciated in the comments sections of any of the blog posts or email them to me. You can either describe them or share a link to resources you have found helpful. 

Our hope is that we can make this accessible to beginners and those who have long traveled this road. 

Thank you for sharing the journey. 

The Rev. Don Remick, Bridge Conference Minister

There is something called the “Tree of Spiritual Practice”.  (It is also known as the Tree of Contemplative  Practice – a name that doesn’t seem to fit with some of the more active practices.) It doesn’t describe or define practices, but it gives an insightful overview of possibilities for every type of person. You can find the image here and a second helpful version here (also above).
