April 17-19, 2020 at the St. Benedict Center (1123 Road I, Schuler, NE 68661 402-352-8819) Spiritual Types with The Rev. Stephanie Swinnea and Spiritual Yoga with Jane Stangl. Mother Stephanie will be presenting on the book, The 3 Colors of Your Spirituality by Christian A. Schwartz. Because spirituality is critical to church growth, Mother Stephanie is especially interested in sharing this resource. She asks, “What comes to mind when you imagine a spiritual person? Someone monastic? Someone who ‘Walks slowly and looks holy?’ Someone who can easily sit in silence? If this is not you, are you unspiritual? We can’t all my mystical.” In this study, you will discover nine different spiritual styles and come to see that every Christian has a native spirituality.

The Seasons of Advent and Christmas are not the happiest times of the year for everyone. The Blue Mass is a quiet and prayerful service that recognizes our losses, our struggles, our sadness and our hope during these seasons which can be painful for many people. It is a candlelight service with music and poetry. This service “acknowledges the things in our lives that can steal our Christmas joy helps us to remember the hope that our Savior promises to us.”
During the Season of Advent, a candlelight service of Lessons and Carols, featuring the St. Andrew’s choir, is held at St. Andrew’s. A reception follows for a time of fellowship. This lovely service provides appropriate observation of the Season of Advent which is so often rolled into the Season of Christmas.
