Spiritual Practices

What spiritual practice have you engaged in lately?

What is a spiritual practice? Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat on the website spiritualityandpractice.com write that spiritual practices are activities we do to deepen our relationship with God. They help us to connect with God and God’s creation and others. Spiritual practices are intentional, something we decide to do. Some require setting aside a special time and place, but most are done in the midst of daily life.

A spiritual practice doesn't have to be difficult or complicated. It’s about finding God in the midst of our lives. A practice isn’t done to become a skill and it probably won’t fix all your problems. It’s a process and changes over time.

One spiritual practice that is easy to engage in this time of year is noticing God’s creation. The colors of the trees, the hills, and the blue sky. There’s the crunch of leaves and plants serving up a harvest. What if every time you go or look outside, you intentionally notice something different, a different color or how the season is changing the landscape. Being grateful and intentional about what the natural world is up to is one way of growing closer to God, the Creator.

God looked over everything he had made; it was so good, so very good! Gen 1:31 Msg

We’ll be looking for you tomorrow at 9:00 or 10:30 am as we gather to worship, thank and praise our God of all creation.

Grace be with you,

Vikki
