As General Seminary resumes classes and worship in the aftermath of Sandy and the Nor'easter, the spiritual direction and wellness programs are mostly up again, too! We've be able to provide a space heater for the Spirituality and Wellness Room on the ground level of the Moore Building, where spiritual direction, reiki, and cranio-sacral therapy and reflexology take place. We've also been in touch with the spiritual directors and therapists who minister to the seminary community. All of them are safe and in good spirits, although some, like the residents on the Close, have been living without certain utilities. Compassion!
Almost all of the ministries have now resumed on a regular schedule. The two exceptions are the Wellness seminar with David Frenette scheduled for this Thursday evening and spiritual direction with Fr. James Warnke this Friday afternoon. Due to the weather, these two offerings have been cancelled.
Here is the calendar and information for the various Spiritual Direction and Wellness Program offerings in the next few days.
