Module 3: Living an Embodied Spirituality

Event Date(s): Sat, 2022/11/05 - 9:00am to 3:00pm
Event Location: Online and In-Person
Event Type: Tyndale Spiritual Formation Centre

Overview

We as Christian believers trust in an incarnate God – a God who came in the flesh to live and dwell among us. How wondrous is this! We like Jesus, live enfleshed – we walk this path of faith, in and through our bodies. Our body is wondrous, our body is wise (essential for discerning our path) and in and through our body we give witness to and participate in, Christ’s ways in the world. To commune with God fully and deeply and with each other, the earth and our very self, requires that we connect with our bodies.

Learning Objectives

In this day we shall reflect upon the:

  • Wonder of our body – bearing God’s image
  • Wisdom of our body – seeded with Spirit’s callings
