About the 2019 Contemplative Cohort
The goal of the Spiritual Life is to live a contemplative life from the heart. Such a life
requires that we take on disciplines and activities that we habitually return to and practice with our whole heart. These practices are chosen because they awaken, deepen and sustain within us the experience of intimate union with the Holy One. Such experiences allow us to feel that every moment of our lives is indeed a holy moment. It is from this place of spiritual or divine awareness that we are able to claim our status as “Beloved Sons and Daughters” of a loving God.
In this cohort we will study and practice many and varied spiritual disciplines. We will
hold one another accountable for the practice so that we will find companionship and support along the way. We will discuss issues that are pertinent to spiritual growth and formation and we will use the wisdom of the enneagram to inform the ease or difficulties we might encounter in our personal spiritual growth.
Facilitators of the Cohort will be Rev. Joseph Stabile, Executive/Spiritual Director of Life in the Trinity Ministry; he will be teaching along with Hunter Mobley, Executive Pastor of Christ Church in Nashville, TN.
