Nun Will Discuss Four Spiritual Paths

Nina Culver Correspondent
 

Sister Mary Kay Henry, a Benedictine nun from Cottonwood, Idaho, and a former Spokane resident, will lead a workshop next Saturday on “Creation Spirituality: Walking the Four Paths of the Faith Journey.” The event, sponsored by the Unitarian Universalist Church and St. Ann’s Roman Catholic Church, will explore the four paths of spiritual journey as identified by Meister Eckhart: waking up, letting go, breaking through, and living out justice and compassion.

Participants will evaluate their owns paths and involvement in politics, economics and religion.

Before moving to Cottonwood, Henry was a pastoral minister at Assumption Roman Catholic Church in Spokane. She has a master’s degree in religious education from Seattle University and completed graduate studies in creation spirituality. She also has studied with the Rev. Mathew Fox, a writer and theologian.

The workshop will be from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. next Saturday at St. Ann’s, 2020 E. First. Participants are asked to wear casual clothes and bring a notebook and sack lunch. A $5 donation is requested.

For more information, call the Unitarian Universalist Church at 325-6383. Henry will also speak at the 9:30 and 11 a.m. services at the Unitarian Church, 4340 W. Fort Wright Drive, on April 27.

Passover services planned

Passover will be observed with two services at Temple Beth Shalom, 1322 E. 30th: at 9 a.m. Tuesday and the following Tuesday, April 29.

Passover commemorates the Hebrews’ exodus from Egypt, led by Moses, about 1200 B.C. It celebrates human freedom as a given right and not a concession of government.

The holy day observances will begin with focus on a generational seder experience, said Rabbi Sol Landau. Families will sit together, relating the exodus story to contemporary life.

Homeschool camp scheduled

A Christian Homeschool Family Camp will be May 22-24 at Silver Lake Bible Camp near Medical Lake.

“Watchmen on the Wall: Homeschooling as Family Ministry” will feature the Rev. Gene Helsel, pastor of the Evangelical Fellowship in Wenatchee.

Cost of the camp is $44 for adults, and $22 for children under 12. Children under 3 are free. The cost includes lodging and meals.

Cabins as well as RV sites are available.

For more information, call Silver Lake Bible camp at (509) 299-3721.

Prayer breakfast to be April 29

Spokane-area clergy and ministerial professionals are invited to attend a prayer breakfast at Whitworth College from 7-8:30 a.m. April 29.

The free breakfast, in Whitworth’s Seeley G. Mudd Chapel, is a non-denominational time of fellowship and spiritual renewal.

Anger management will be topic

Our Savior’s Lutheran Church, 302 W. Augusta, will sponsor a series of presentations and discussions on understanding the causes, effects and management of anger.

Topics include why people become angry, where anger comes from, how to express it, how to change destructive anger patterns … and how to develop a positive personal action anger plan.

There will be seven Wednesday-night sessions, beginning Wednesday and continuing through June 4, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Cost is $20 each, or $30 a couple, including child care and materials. To register, or to receive more information, call 328-7820.
