Spiritual Practices and Reflections

Authentic Christian Spiritual Practices provide life-giving energy for daily living. The wealth of Christian spiritual practices fills libraries around the world.
  • "Our hearts were made for Thee, O Lord, and they will not rest until they rest in Thee" - St. Augustine
  • "God is at home. It is we who have gone out for a walk." - Meister Eckhaart
  • "Christian spirituality is down and in, not up and out." - Father Richard Rohr
  • "I have come that you might have life, life in abundance." - Jesus, John 10:10
  • "A path into the mystery of God in union with Christ under the influence of the Holy Spirit." - Ron Rolheiser, Roman Catholic priest, author, columnist, and speaker
The purpose of authentic Christian spiritual practices is to:
  • Increase our awareness of the indwelling presence of God and God's unconditional love
  • Create a sense of mindfulness and an ability to live in the now
  • Nurture our relationship with God
  • See the presence of God in creation with new eyes
  • Experience inner peace and freedom from stress
  • Clear away the obstacles that prevent us from sensing our unity with God
  • Know God in and through life's experience
  • Fashion a lifestyle that is healthy and joyful
  • Learn the dance steps that enable us to dance with God and all of creation
  • Practice and become comfortable with the dance steps in order to dance with grace and joy
The dancer is the disciple of Christ, and the dance is a way of living out our love of God through a
healthy lifestyle and vocation to ministry.
