This Week in Spiritual Life

This Week in Spiritual Life 

Everyone is welcome at all Spiritual Life activities wherever you are on your spiritual journey.

 

 Week of September 2, 2014

 21 Days of Prayer for Union College -- August 26-September 15

We ask God's blessing on Union College as we embody a healthy spirituality.

Each year we begin the academic year with 21 Days of Prayer.  Spiritual Life's emphasis this fall is on a healthy spirituality, and our prayer reflects that emphasis.  Please join us in prayer over the next three weeks.

 

Eat Pray Fun -- Tuesday, 5:30-7:30 PM

Pizza, Childhood Bible Stories, and Board Games

Location: Spiritual Life House, which is the green house on Manchester Street near the Stop and Go.

 

Fall Retreat -- Gatlinburg, TN, Friday - Sunday, Sept. 5-7

Theme: A Healthy Spirituality

We will be staying at this cabin outside of Gatlinburg.  It has video games, a theater room, a hot tub, and a POOL!  Check it out!  http://www.wyndhamvacationrentals.com/vacation-rentals/tennessee/smoky-mountains/gatlinburg/rental/house.html?ID=326&Avail=&Stay=&User=WVR355029&PromoCode=

We will have devotions and other spiritual activities, in addition to watching movies and having free time in the cabin and in Gatlinburg.  Anyone associated with Union College is eligible to go, but numbers are limited.  All expenses covered by Union College at no cost to you!

There will be a $20 deposit that will be refunded to you when you get on the van to leave for the trip.  In order to register for the trip, take your $20 to Gina Witt, in the Business Office upstairs in Speed Hall.  Again, you will get your $20 back when you leave for the trip.  If you don't show up for the trip, we'll use your $20 to get some extra snacks for the rest of us.  Yes, seriously.

We will leave campus Friday, Sept. 5, at 3:00 PM from the Student Center, and we will arrive back on campus about the same time on Sunday, Sept. 7.
