What is the purpose of prayer, of meditation, contemplation, or any kind of spiritual practice? What is the role of worship and gathering together as a church community?
Perhaps it makes us feel better. We may be uplifted and we very well may enjoy our time together – but is that its purpose or more of a side effect?
This week at Unity, we deepen our Advent journey by exploring what prayer and spiritual practice is for: what it is, and – perhaps – what it is not. Join us for a view on the practice of prayer and spiritual community by songwriter and speaker Doug Benecke, communing musically with Sallie Spirit.
Doug is a lifelong musician and student of the human spirit. He holds a religion degree from Oberlin College and works daily as an addictions counselor.
