JULY/AUGUST SPIRITUAL PRACTICE
Our monthly spiritual practice activities are creative ways to connect to God, and can help with the hectic day to day stress of schedules and dominance of technology. May these 'practices' bring balance, as you and your family cultivate new ways to engage with God and each other. 

EXPLORING THE SEASON

In some parts of our country, people sometimes only experience one or two of our four seasons.  Here in the​​ 
northeast, we are lucky enough to enjoy all of the seasons, and all the wonder they bring.  The summer months offer us many opportunities to enjoy God's creation...from looking at the clouds while lying on a blanket, to hiking and exploring the trees and butterflies.

Taking time to appreciate the glory of God's creation around us is a great way to appreciate how much we have, and how much God cares for us..."Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they neither toil nor spin, yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not clothed like one of these." Matthew 6:28


May we all take the time this summer to recognize the beauty that surrounds us here on the Shoreline, showing gratitude and thanks to God for all that is provided to us in nature!
