Spiritual Practice

Spiritual practice has been part of the Christian tradition for centuries. They are particularly helpful during seasons of preparation, such as Lent and Advent. They are also of enormous value in times like these, when we are disconnected from one another, and fears and anxieties are surging. We encourage you to take advantage of four spiritual disciplines—The Stations of the Cross, the Spirituality of Chant, Meditation, and Writing to God—available online at fapc.org/spiritual-practice.

CREDO: Four Christian Mystics

This year our popular Adult Education series, CREDO: Essentials of Christian Theology, explores the Christian spiritual tradition through the lives of four mystical teachers. The series began on Sunday, March 8, with Senior Pastor Scott Black Johnston’s class on Hildegard von Bingen. Three remaining classes—Werner Ramirez on Julian of Norwich, Charlene Han Powell on Teresa of Ávila, and Kate Dunn on Thérèse of Lisieux—will be presented online. Follow the series at fapc.org/credo.

Adult Education offers an array of classes in Biblical and theological studies, church history, Christian spirituality and contemporary issues in church and society. All classes are free and open to all. Registration is not required, unless noted otherwise.
