Course Description

What does it mean to pray with our whole bodies?


What does Pentecost teach us about what it means to be a people of prayer and pilgrimage?


Join us for a look at using the five senses to pray, inspired by a recent pilgrimage to the Holy Land. This class can be used as a contemplative practice during the season of Pentecost or be adaptive to make your summer travels a holy moment of pilgrimage and we lean into our Incarnational theology and encounter God through embodied prayer.
