Cultivating God’s Compassion with Janet Ruffing

March 10, 2017 - March 11, 2017


Janet K. Ruffing, Professor in the Practice of Spirituality and Ministerial Leadership, Yale Divinity School, New Haven, Conn.


As spiritual directors and leaders, pastoral caregivers, and seekers of deeper spiritual lives, we desire to experience and to express God’s compassion in our daily walk.  This two-day event provides an opportunity to explore this desire more deeply.

Friday’s presentation will consider the spiritual practice of Developing a Habit of Mercy and Recognizing Its Interruptions. Saturday’s workshop will explore how we Cultivate God’s Compassion for and in ourselves and bring that wisdom to fuller expression in our own lives, relationships, and ministries. Insights will be drawn from the work of Julian of Norwich, Meister Eckhart, and others. Co-sponsored with Pneuma Institute and The Ephesus Project.
