Spiritual Practices may sound like a somewhat archaic and irrelevant subject to be addressing. In his book Everyday Spiritual Practice, the UU minister Scott W. Alexander offers this definition: “[Spiritual Practices] are any activity or attitude in which you can regularly and intentionally engage, and which significantly deepens the quality of your relationship with the miracle of life both within and beyond you.”

I consider them practices that increase my awareness and that encourage me to examine and shape my life to achieve more depth, satisfaction, and meaning. They are practices that diminish the extent to which I respond out of emotional reactivity to what is happening and instead increase my capacity to respond consciously and with choice and intention, in ways that support my capacity to bless the world.

Practices are tools, not ends, and our individual situations will define the tools we choose to use. You may have found that as your life circumstances change, what helps you maintain connection and balance also changes. This Chalice Circle is an opportunity to explore some tools and maybe rediscover ones you’ve used before as we seek to discover our joys and yearnings.

All members and friends—old and new—are invited to join. Sign up in the church lobby or contact secretary@uubgky.org.
