Contemplative living in today's busy world
Over the centuries Christian followers have banded together in orders to form communities that reflect a profound commitment to a spiritual path and to nurture each other together in their spiritual journeys.
Spiritual practices and disciplines such as regular prayer and meditation, journaling, worship and sabbath support us.
