Spiritual Practices

Spiritual practices include any activity which quiets the mind and connects us with the spirit within us, deepening our awareness of and connecting us with the Divine. The gifts of the Holy Spirit, such as peace, joy, gentleness, kindness, and endurance are then nourished and can be manifested in our lives. Spiritual practices may also include activities such as walks in nature, watching a sunrise or sunset, Christian Yoga or simply noticing the face of God in the people, places and events of our daily lives.
