Personal Spirituality

The spiritual life is a lifelong process of opening ourselves to God. The spiritual journey begins even before we are aware of it. That journey brings us to the point of opening our hearts to God.

As we grow in our practice of personal spiritual disciplines, we grow in our responsiveness and obedience to God's call. Personal prayer, Bible study, spiritual reading, fasting, journaling, acts of justice and compassion - these and other personal spiritual practices, all are means of opening our lives to God.
