Spirituality

"The spiritual life . . . is not achieved by denying one part of life for the sake of another. The spiritual life is achieved by listening to all of life and learning to respond to each of its dimensions wholly and with integrity."        - Joan D. Chittister, Wisdom Distilled from the Daily: Living the Rule of St. Benedict Today

CLC (Christ Lutheran Church) commits itself to the tending of the whole person -- the body, mind, and spirit, with the whole cosmos, the past, the present, and future. We offer ministry which binds together what is broken and which is dedicated to both spiritual nurture and development. Our offerings in spirituality seek to both be innovative, responding to a rapidly-evolving world, and also deeply rooted in the ancient traditions of the church.

Prayer Chain

A network of people committed to daily prayer for the needs of others. Submit a request through our Prayer Request form (below) or, to find out how to be part of the prayer team, contact clcelca@makingchristknown.org.

Prayer for Worship

Several members gather with the worship leaders prior to worship to pray for those serving that day, for those in need, and for the whole world.

Prayers of the People

Each Sunday we pray publicly for those who are ill or suffering during worship. Names for prayer can be submitted through any member of the congregation.

Our Labyrinth

We welcome you to visit our labyrinth.

What is a Labyrinth? A labyrinth is a pattern, usually in the form of a circle that has one path, beginning at the outer edge and leading by a circuitous path into the center. Unlike a maze, there are no dead ends—one is never lost.

The journey promotes safety and peace. The path in is as important as the path out. Labyrinths have been used for centuries for prayer, meditation, and symbolic pilgrimage as well as personal and spiritual growth.

Labyrinths can be found in almost every religious/cultural tradition around the world. Their symbolism has been found on rock carvings, coins, pottery, and clay tablets dating back almost 4000 years. During the Middle Ages, labyrinths were built in many cathedrals in Europe.

Sacred Space

Our Sacred Space is a room set-aside from other spaces at Christ Lutheran. Our Sacred Space invites you for prayer, contemplation, and meditation. Its library resources help to focus our attention on the history of the spiritual tradition, the roots of the scriptures, and other sources of religious meaning.

Resources

"For some, spirituality lies in the awareness of God in Nature. For some, the cosmic God emerges through a life of service. For others, spirituality involves the development of meditative states that open the door to the nothingness that our complex and complicated lives otherwise obstruct. But for everyone spirituality is not what we do to satisfy the requirements of a religion; it is the way we come into contact with the holy." - Joan Chittister
