Looking for a Lenten Discipline? 5 Spiritual Exercises with DIOLEX

The Diocese of Lexington (KY) is offering a 5-week “Spiritual Exercise” formation class. The live Zoom sessions started last week, but you can view the videos for yourself at your own pace. Tonight (March 1, 2021) I will be leading a discussion of the importance of the study of the Bible. All Five Exercises are: prayer, gratitude, service, study, and sharing. More details are below or can be found at the link (click the image) below.

Would you like to feel God’s presence more deeply? The Diocese of Lexington is proud to offer this course that will introduce five ancient spiritual exercises that have helped Christians cultivate a more joyful and life-giving relationship with God and neighbor.

This course contains five engaging short films of around 8-10 minutes in length in which parishioners and clergy from Newport to Prestonsburg discuss how the themes of prayer, gratitude, service, study and sharing help them feel God’s presence more deeply and love their neighbors more faithfully.

This formation opportunity is designed for anyone who is interested in cultivating their spiritual life, from people brand new to Christianity to cradle Episcopalians. The course will also have a participant guide with discussion questions that go along with each theme. The discussion guide will help participants reflect on each theme and get the group talking about how these five spiritual exercises can help to build a more vibrant and joyous life within ourselves as individuals and also as communities.

Two ways to participate!
