The Seeker’s Book Study explores our spiritual side via the reading of books by progressive authors. Carl Jung noted that when religious people move into the middle-age, they struggle with the image of God ‘up there’ in heaven.  This class explores other metaphors for the divine which resonate better for those who have gone beyond the God image of our younger selves.  Specifically, this year we will begin by exploring “Sacred Earth, Sacred Soul” by John Philip Newell.  We will also go beyond what the authors write by discussing our own experience and how it relates to each week’s reading.

Class meets on Sunday mornings at 9AM starting Oct. 8th.  For the first class we will discuss the preface and the Introduction to “Sacred Earth, Sacred Soul.”  All our welcome.

A summary of the book: A leading spiritual teacher reveals how Celtic spirituality—listening to the sacred around us and inside of us—can help us heal the earth, overcome our conflicts, and reconnect with ourselves.

John Philip Newell shares the long, hidden tradition of Celtic Christianity, explaining how this earth-based spirituality can help us rediscover the natural rhythms of life and deepen our spiritual connection with God, with each other, and with the earth. Newell introduces some of Celtic Christianity’s leading practitioners, both saints and pioneers of faith, whose timeless wisdom is more necessary than ever.

The following Sundays there will be no class: Oct 29th, Nov 26th, Dec 24th and 31st.
