Living a Life of Love: A 100 Day Journey Based on the 500 Year Old Spiritual Exercises, January

In a world often characterized by exclusion, division and intolerance, how can ordinary people learn to live with the extraordinary love of Jesus? Five hundred years ago, the founder of the Jesuits, Ignatius of Loyola, wrestled with this very issue. In response, he created the Spiritual Exercises, a series of practices, prayers and readings designed to guide participants into transformative lives of love.  In their original form, the Exercises required a 30 day period of isolation with every day fully devoted to this journey, or a 9 month period in which participants spent part of each day in the Exercises. In a new abbreviated form, Chris Altrock will lead you through a 100 day experience of the Exercises. Each day you’ll receive a brief devotional which includes a prayer, a text/ topic to ponder, and a short spiritual practice. Most participants will be able to complete this in 20-25 minutes/day. Once a week, for 60 minutes, you’ll gather with other participants on Zoom to reflect on the past week and how you experienced God’s love and/or how you expressed God’s love during that week. Hosted by CenterPeace as a safe place for LGBTQ+ Christians and allies, the group is also open to SCC members. SCC members register by email chrisaltrock@gmail.com.
