Only the start of something special.
The decline of church membership and attendance over the past century does not reflect a diminishing need for people to have a spiritual dimension in their lives.
St Michael’s has always promoted spiritual wellbeing, and Mingary was a first step to providing alternative ways to nourish the Spirit and Soul.
Spirituality has a positive impact on Wellbeing.
Please join Rev Peter Burnham and Richard Siegersma, as they explore the opportunities to enhance the spiritual dimension in our lives.
Dr Lisa Miller wrote in the New York, Best Seller -‘The Spiritual Child’ –
“Science now tells us that this spiritual faculty is inborn, fundamental to the human constitution, central in our physiology and psychology. Nothing radically lowered the risk for depression like a shared spirituality. Spirituality links brain, mind, and body.”
Nearly 70% of Uniting Church congregations are over 50! Where have all the people gone? We must find appropriate, evidence-based ways to nourish the Soul, so more people have the Fruits of the Good Spirit in their lives and want to show them. Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Goodness, Faithfulness, Gentleness, Self-control.
You can help.
Come along and join Rev Peter Burnham and Richard Siegersma to explore and be part of an inspiring and insightful conversation about a fantasy for the future.
