Personal Spiritual Practices

Rev. Carmen Emerson
BBUUC’s Affiliated Community Minister
Presents Second Sunday Spirit in Practice:
Personal Spiritual Practices
Claudia Marshall, Worship Leader
Eileen Morrison, Accompanist
Stephanie Miller, Guest Musician

Our sermon series continues with a consideration of personal spiritual practices that ground us and help us hear “the still small voice within,” which allows us access to our internal wisdom and true selves. As part of our exploration, we’ll practice an “intercessory prayer” together during the service. You’re encouraged to bring a journal and pen to our Second Sunday Spirit in Practice services.”
