Deep: Moving Beyond Shallow Spirituality

We are assaulted with anxiety. Breaking news alerts, horror story headlines, political outrage, global crises – not to mention the challenges of everyday life! But do you ever feel like when you dip into your spiritual wells to deal with these difficulties, you come up short? You read the Bible, pray, go to church, give, and serve, but something seems to be missing. Your spiritual life feels too shallow to deal with the anxieties of our age. If that’s you, you’re not alone! So many of us have separated our spiritual life from our emotional and relational life. We ignore sadness and fear, avoid conflict, live beyond our limits, hide parts of ourselves from God and others, and more. But life doesn’t have to be this way. We believe that God is inviting us to move beyond shallow spirituality to a deeper experience of emotional and spiritual health that will lead to true joy and flourishing. We would love for you to join us this spring as we go deeper together!
