This year, Transfiguration offers to all of its members specific scheduled times to work on self-reflection. Both of these new programs offer adults the opportunity to reflect and unite in a safe, confidential community setting.
Wednesday March 15, 22, 29 and April 5 5:30 – 7:00 p.m. Beaver Creek Chapel
Using Stephen A. Macchia’s book, Crafting a Rule of Life, Father Brooks and Pastor Tim will walk us through each of the 12 themes (in a 4 week period) as a contemporary approach to St. Benedict’s Rule, using biblical and historical reflections on each theme. These sessions are free and the soup supper is included.
A recent study published by Harvard stated that after a 75-year study, the finding is that the one secret to living a fulfilled and healthy life is good relationships. Love is the greatest predictor of happiness and fulfillment. The release of this study’s findings is timely for our Lenten study this year. Over the next 5 weeks, we will examine how we can each create our own Rule of Life, in order to strengthen our relationship with Christ.
A Rule of Life is a pattern of spiritual disciplines that provide intentional structure to your life. This pattern helps establish a rhythm to life in which our relationship with Christ is the central focus. This is a pattern, which can be established in many ways, with each person’s Rule of Life different from another.
As a community, the study will focus on several different aspects of our lives and provide ways in which we can refocus the components of life on our relationship with God.
Wednesday March 8, 15, 22, 29, and April 5:00 – 6:00 p.m. Edwards Interfaith Chapel
Childcare is provided (RSVP HERE), and a family dinner follows at 6:00 p.m. Each section of our Lenten studies this year will focus on these topics weekly:

Please join us in learning about how we can better integrate our Faith with the rest of our lives. We are very excited to begin this journey together. It is a wonderful opportunity for us to renew our relationship with God and truly experience a fulfilled life that hinges on the great love with have in Jesus Christ.
