Messing with Spiritual Traditions
What makes you feel close to God? For most of us it is not pulpits and pipe organs, but ordinary things like breathing, walking, gardening or taking photos. Its time to mess with tradition and explore creative and enriching practices that encourage us to entwine the sacred through all of life. Come prepared to imagine and create.
