Anglicans (a.k.a Episcopalians) have contributed many rich resources to the wellspring of spirituality. We’ve tapped into that source to create this course consisting of 40 emails. Each email includes a thought-provoking quotation from an Anglican preacher, teacher, or spiritual director followed by a related practice suggestion. You are encouraged to reflect on the passage quoted and then work on the spiritual practice during the day.
We have found a breadth and depth of material in the writings of Desmond Tutu, Lauren Artress, Robert Benson, Alan Jones, Esther De Waal, Barbara Cawthorne Crafton, Tilden Edwards, Nora Gallagher, Madeleine L’Engle, Margaret Guenther, Morton Kelsey, Sue Monk Kidd, and many others. These Anglican pioneers of the faith have through their books given us much to ponder and to practice. Both inspiring and practical, they illuminate such practices as prayer, discernment, lectio divina, forgiveness, silence, and more.
This course is designed for laity and clergy and tailor-made for those involved in spiritual formation or any congregational small group. You need not be Anglican — or even Christian — to apply their writings to the particulars of your daily life.
