Trinity Cathedral Hosts Guest Preacher
Integrity Arizona Potluck Meeting
Integrity is the national Episcopal LGBTQ support and advocacy group. The local chapter’s next meeting is Saturday, December 12 at 6:00 p.m. at St. Peter’s (Litchfield Park). Everyone is welcome if they are in need of support or are supportive of our mission to share God’s love with the LGBTQ/ally community. Please bring an entree or side dish to share. Dessert and beverages will be provided. For questions, contact Claudine Pease-Wingenter.
Spiritual Direction Training
Christian Formation and Direction Ministries (CFDM) is once again offering a two-year spiritual direction training program at St. Barnabas (Scottsdale). Applications are being accepted for the fourth Arizona Cohort beginning in January. Spiritual directors do not actually “direct” anyone; they are trained to help individuals find the direction the Holy Spirit has for their lives. If interested in learning more, access the application or contact Joyce Vidal-Thornburg for additional information at email@example.com or 602-750-9970.
