Ongoing: Summer book group features Jan Phillip's No Ordinary Time

The Sophia Center for Spirituality and Winged Life Coaching present No Time for Ordinary:
Stepping Into the Change We Want To See.

Jan Phillips is an evolutionary thought leader. In her book, No Ordinary Time, using poems, songs and personal stories, she evokes our own capacity for new thought and inspired action that can lead to transformation. In the introduction, Phillips writes, “These are no ordinary times. We are witnessing and participating in an evolutionary leap unlike anything in our history. There is evidence in the human family of an upward shift in consciousness, a maturing spirituality, and a connectedness that grows more intimate and global by the day….Growing up spiritually is a requirement of us in this hour.”

Wednesdays - June 14 & 28, July 12 & 26, and August 9 & 23
Choose 12:00-1:30 p.m. OR  6:30-8:00 p.m.
First Congregational Church, 30 Main St. Binghamton, NY 13905
Facilitators: Cheryl Lyon, CPC and Sister Lois Barton, CSJ
Suggested donation: $60 (you will also need to purchase the book - available on Amazon)

Using the book No Ordinary Time as a launching point, we will:
•    Look at our individual, religious and cultural stories, to see how they have shaped our beliefs and how they may help us move forward;
•    Consider how we might create more satisfying and nourishing lives for ourselves and others by actively participating in the ongoing work of the Creative Force (which you may call God, Mind-At-Large, the Universe or Life);
•    Explore the interplay between contemplation and (inspired) action;
•    Envision a future that includes everyone.
