Rom. 15:7    "Welcome one another, therefore, just as Christ has welcomed you, for the glory of God."  We will explore the disciple of hospitality and consider how it helps to shape a Christlike community.
Lent is "penitential," so how do we embody that penitence in our spiritual practices?  What does it mean for us to promise to "keep a holy Lent.?"
Advent is both a season of hope that Jesus is coming in the celebration of the birth of the Christ-child and a season of warning that "he will come again to judge the living and the dead."

These and other questions are at the heart of thinking about spiritual disciplines which are particularly suitable for the various seasons in the liturgical year.
