In such an intense season on planet earth, pandemic, fear, racial unrest, we are all in desperate need of some holy space. The key is not to run away from the world, but get free enough to engage the world with empathy and compassion. You're invited to join liturgist, writer and pastor Aaron Niequist as he leads you through several spiritual practice exercises. You will experience several practices led by Aaron and will discuss those experiences to equip you to create your own practices.
