March 30, 2020

The Rev. Ben Wyatt

This month, we are really excited to host a free three-session online class on Ignatian spirituality. We hope you will join us for this awesome course and share it with anyone who is interested.

Can gratitude renew your spiritual life? Is it possible to become a more grateful person? In this webinar series, we’ll see how the answer to both of these questions is a resounding yes! For 500 years, the Spiritual Exercises of Ignatius of Loyola have been transforming people’s lives by opening their eyes to God’s gifts and encouraging them to respond in gratitude. Now you have the opportunity to embark on the same journey by learning some of the basic techniques of Ignatian spirituality, from the famous “Examination of Conscience” to immersive, imaginative methods of reading the Bible. All along the way, you’ll be learning how these practices can deepen your gratitude – and how that gratitude can enrich your entire spiritual life. Whether you’ve read and loved The Jesuit Guide to Almost Everything or you are just hungry for new ways to connect with God, this series is for you!
