Spiritual Spa: Feast of Light

Mustard Seed’s second Spiritual Spa attracted almost 30 people on the evening of Dec. 8, 2005. They came to pray, relax, create art, and just slow things down during an impossibly busy month. Participants chose two of the six different workshops. Here are a few visuals from this soothing and spiritual evening:

Contemplating the Moments of Conversion in our Lives

The Faith Connections event on Nov. 4, "Called to Conversion and Service," was an evening filled with stories, song and time to contemplate the moments of conversion that have occurred in our lives. The guest speaker, Rob Shearer, shared with us his personal journey in faith. In particular he talked about some key moments or turning points that have led him on a life of rich experience. Accompanying Rob was the wonderfully talented Julia who played guitar and sang some well-selected songs that complemented Rob's stories.
