Sources of Compassion and Strength

Academy for Spiritual Formation

For all who hunger for God…

Our theme for the 2019 Five Day Academy is “Sources of Compassion and Strength.”

We come, eager to re-connect with the roots of our faith. For too long our hearts have been hardened by cynical voices around us and within.

We come, ready to learn new ways to be the people of God. It is so easy to give up on the Church.

We come because Jesus told us to: “Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me – watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace.” (Matthew 11:28-29, The Message)

The Day Of

A gift of the Academy is the rhythm of the day. Each day includes about two hours of worship, two hours of lecture, two hours of free time, two hours for meals and two hours for community. Time for processing what we are learning and experiencing is essential for integrating head and heart, leading to a more balanced and healthy spiritual life.
