Trying again on “The Walk”

Last year, when the COVID-19 crisis struck, we were two sessions into our Lenten series, The Walk: Discover Five Spiritual Practices to Help You Walk Closer with God. We suspended the series, as we were not clear at that point as to how we could offer it online. Now that we’re getting pretty proficient at Zoom, we can…so we’re going to start over. In this series, Adam Hamilton, a United Methodist pastor, will help us, though a series of videos, to discover five essential spiritual practices that are rooted in Jesus’ own walk with God. In each session, Hamilton’s engaging teaching style will help us explore one of these practices, its New Testament foundation, and its potential effect on our personal lives and our lives together as the church. These online sessions will be held Monday evenings at 7 p.m. beginning Feb. 22. Those who so desire may order the accompanying book. (Some of you already have it.) To order the book, click here.
