Spirituality is a concept so loaded that it’s hard to know what it means. Yet many of us sense there is a dimension of ourselves and of life that we can’t understand through reason alone. But, it’s easy to ignore that sense. And although it can take time and effort, we also know what it’s like to find, honor and embrace it.
By making room for God in our lives, we experience new kinds of wholeness, connection and purpose. We believe that being spiritual isn’t about becoming otherworldly or superhuman; it’s about becoming more fully human. As Henri Nouwen said, “The life of faith doesn’t remove us from the world, it draws us more deeply into it.”
There are many ways to explore spirituality at Our Redeemer’s. Worship, learning and retreats offer space for us to listen, reflect and connect with God. It doesn’t matter which avenue we start down; eventually we realize that something, Someone, is changing us. For good. For life. For our own wholeness and for the world’s.
