Journaling as a Spiritual Practice
Are you interested in a spiritual practice that is guaranteed to enrich your prayer life, increase your gratitude and help you connect with God’s deep love for you?  Join with us to launch (or enrich) your own Spiritual Journaling practice! 
We will meet on four Thursdays in April for an hour each week to learn about the benefits and blessings of Spiritual Journaling.  Using my own experiences, I will teach from my book Abba House and Me: Prayer Changes Everything, which is both a spiritual memoir of a challenging time in my family’s life, and the history of a local house of prayer.   (Abba House was founded and operated in Albany for 30 years by two Religious of the Sacred Heart of Jesus.)
Bring a blank journal so you can get started!​​
