What Does a Healthy Christian Spirituality Look Like? An Evening with Melannie Svoboda

This evening presentation will explore several signs or indicators that our Christian spirituality is alive and healthy.  Among those signs are: a sense of wonder, friendship, courage amid pain and sorrow, compassion, and hope. 

Using scripture, stories, music, and humor, Melannie Svoboda, SND, will remind us that ultimately the true  measure of the health of our spirituality    is our resemblance to Jesus himself.
