Spiritual Formation Program

Do you yearn for spiritual deepening?  Are you longing for growth in a community of seekers who support one another on our individual journeys?  Have you felt a nudge to greater intentionality in your spiritual practice?  If so, the Spiritual Formation Program is for you.

Experience spiritual growth in community.  From September through May, program participants meet twice each month (once as a small group and once as a large group where we share a meal together) to share spiritual journeys, to support one another in spiritual practices, and to reflect on reading material that the group chooses together.  Each participant commits to undertake an individual spiritual practice of their choice, such as prayer, meditation, journaling, devotional reading, or celebration.  The (optional) opening retreat in the fall introduces spiritual practices, and throughout the year participants experiment to discern what practices bring them closer to God.  In the spring, there is a closing retreat (also optional).

Spiritual Formation is a program offered by the Stony Run Friends (Quaker) Meeting in cooperation with other Friends meetings in the area.  To find out more, join us for an information session on Sunday, August 20 at noon.  You are invited to attend Meeting for Worship that morning at 10AM and enjoy brunch after Meeting around 11:15 AM. Additionally, an information session will be held Wednesday evening August 23 at 7:30 PM.  Stony Run Meeting is located at 5116 North Charles Street, Baltimore Maryland (443-703-2590, sroffice@StonyRunFriends.org).  The information sessions are free, as is the Spiritual Formation program (there is a charge for the optional retreats).
