Janis Reiss is like the rest of us that struggle with deepening our spirituality and relationship with God. In this funny, yet vulnerable memoir, Janis spends a year tackling twelve different spiritual practices in her quest to become more saintly, including fasting, fixed-hour prayer, the Jesus Prayer, gratitude, Sabbath-keeping, and generosity. This month our focus is the discipline of fasting. Our next monthly meeting will be October 21 at 11:30am in the vestry library.
As a community, we will be exploring one chapter at a time and trying these spiritual disciplines alongside Jana. Have you been interested in learning more about centering prayer, or a deeper sabbath observance? this is a great read for the start of a new year, when many of us try to adopt new positive habits and routines The honesty and sincerity in the writing of Jana Riess provide encouragement, inspiration, and laughter.
