Men’s Group

Men's group logoBrothers on the Journey: Men Supporting Men Seeking to Deepen Their Spiritual Lives. Columbus Small Group of Illuman-Ohio >
In cooperation with the Spirituality Network

We meet the second Tuesday of each month from 6pm–8:30pm at the home of the convener. We welcome all men to our work without regard for ethnicity, class, education, sexual orientation, religion, or any other characteristic that might make you feel excluded. Our programs and offerings focus on providing men with an opportunity to do their “inner work” in the company of other men. We use ritual, teaching, and ways of communicating that allow men to create an environment where men can explore what matters to them most.

Contact Rich Horton for details at 440/567-3187 or by e-mail >

 

Busy Person’s Directed Retreat

It is a simple idea: over the course of 2 to 4 weeks (depending upon your preference), you make a commitment to yourself and to God for special time each day for prayer, reflection, and silence while keeping your ordinary day-to-day schedule. Three or four times during the course of the retreat you will meet with a spiritual director to reflect on your daily practice of prayer and the ways in which you are—or perhaps are not—noticing the presence of God in daily life. This is an excellent opportunity to get a “taste” of how spiritual direction might enrich your journey.

These retreats begin and end with all participants and directors gathered for community prayer and blessing. Typically offered to groups of 8–20 people for two, three, or four weeks, these retreats have been offered at area churches and seminaries since 1994.
