Open Hands, Willing Hearts


Why am I here?  What is mine to do? Who am I called to be?
And what can I contribute and offer to the world?

This New Year, journey with Patience Robbins for this 6 session eCourse series, beginning January 10.

Recognizing and living into one’s call is a lifelong process of discernment. In this six-week class, Patience Robbins and Margaret Pfeil will invite you to look at your life, no matter what age, and notice your unique contribution to God’s vision.

Through storytelling and sharing of their experience, the leaders will help renew your appreciation of your life and cultivate your attention, receptivity and responsiveness to how the Spirit is leading and guiding from within, through nature, and through the people who mentor and inspire you. They will help you attend to what gets in the way of being open and discerning and claim how the Spirit leads you to live an authentic life.

Each week will include experiential exercises, reflection questions and resources to assist this six-week journey.  The audio teachings, downloadable reflection questions, and resource links can be accessed at any time during the six weeks.
