Local summer getaway awaits


Dear Middleway Urban Monastery friends, School has been out for a month. Is anyone bored yet? Are any parents desparately searching for local things to do? Are any grandparents who are planning grandchildren visits in need of affordable activities? We've got this. Kids are welcome to come with you to explore Middleway. Chances are they will find something in our large FREE art center where abundant supplies await their creativity. Unlike most other activities, ours is in a quiet, calming, peaceful, cool atmosphere. And the best part of all is that Middleway opens an opportunity for you and the kids you love to share thoughts about God. Priceless. Find out more about our events below! Middleway's Facebook Group

Our next get together will be Saturday, July 23, 10:30 a.m.-noon. It is guided by Amy Brunt Thompson. You do not have to have attended previous sessions to come, and all are welcome. Tell us what topics, events you would like to explore Our spiritual directors are planning the coming year and would like your input. As you think about where you are with God, what topics would you be interested in learning more about in a discussion group, retreat, workshop or other type of gathering? Let us know at info@middlewayurbanmonastery.org. Spiritual direction offered at Middleway A spiritual director is one who can listen to you with a holy ear and doesn't try to "fix" you with their solutions. Being listened to -- truly listened to -- is powerfully healing. Spiritual directors at Middleway are trained and vetted so we know your story will be heard and kept in confidence. After selecting a spiritual director, a person normally plans to meet with that person monthly for an hour. Our current spiritual directors are listed at https://www.middlewayurbanmonastery.org/spiritual-direction. Let us know if we can help you find a listening soul companion. School for spiritual formation, direction applications due FIND - School for Spiritual Direction and Formation, now in its 25th year and hosted by Middleway, is forming its next cohort. Applications are accepted through June 30. Classes, which are held once a month on a Saturday, begin in September. Learn more at www.schoolforspiritualdirection.org.
