Leader: Rev. Janice Springer
Our work together is based on but goes beyond Janice Springer's
book, Nurturing Spiritual Depth in Christian Worship: Ten Practices.
You will go home with ready-to-use ideas and a packet of liturgical resources for Lent/ Easter.
While it will offer us concrete tools, it will lead us deeper than techniques, with the intent not only of deepening our congregations' worship, but also enriching our personal spiritual lives and strengthening our communities.
