Life and How to Live It:  Invitations for Everyone 

“Everything is phenomenal; everything is incredible; never treat life casually. To be spiritual is to be amazed.”  ---Abraham Joshua Heschel

The Christian spiritual life is not about achievement; it’s about amazement.  It’s not about labor; it’s about play.  This semester we explore the abundant opportunities to “taste and see that the Lord is good.” (Psalm 34:8)  Join us as any Friday as we reclaim our lives and our peace---one invitation at a time. With fee lunch every time!
