Life is busy and at times- stressful.  And because it is we may have a difficult time listening to God trying to get our attention.  Brookdale Reformed Church will be offering a quiet and pray filled experience for body, mind and spirit.

Walk the Labyrinth on Wednesday, October 25th - any time between 5:30 and 8:30pm in our Fellowship Hall. 16 Bellevue Avenue, Bloomfield NJ. Call for more information: 973-338-7676

What is the Labyrinth? The Labyrinth is a circle with single a path to and from the center. Walking the labyrinth is a way of praying with the body that invites the divine presence of God into an active conversation with the heart and soul. It has been used as a walking meditation to assist us in finding inner peace, managing stress, and healing us physically, emotionally, and spiritually for centuries. The Labyrinth invites us to quiet the mind, calm the body, and stir the spirit on a journey of presence and deep transformation as we feel surrounded by God’s love and mercy.

We invite you to explore the Labyrinth and experience for yourself this ancient tool for personal transformation. Come walk with us!

Recommended Articles from the "Engaging & Supporting Emerging Adults in Faith Communities" Event

We have received a great deal of positive feedback from the event with Dr. Steven Argue, which was co-sponsored by the Synods of the Mid-Atlantics and New York.  Below is a list of articles by Dr. Argue that we encourge you to read.  For more pictures from the event and to download this list click here.

 

  • “Beyond the Conference: 4 Questions to Transform Your Ministry Training Approach” https://fulleryouthinstitute.org/blog/ministry-training-approach  Check out Steve Argue’s article “Beyond the Conference: 4 Questions to Transform Your Ministry Training Approach.” Learn how to make the most of your conference and training opportunities and implement what you learn back at your congregation.
  • “Soul Care Sweat” http://stickyfaith.org/articles/soul-care-sweat  Read this article by Steven Argue where he looks at the movement of spirituality and questions: “In the name of order or program, might we unknowingly be teaching a motionless spirituality?”
  • “From Faith to Faithing” http://www.stevenargue.com/2016/08/17/from-faith-to-faithing/  In “From Faith to Faithing” Steven Argue explores how religion should not be a stagnant noun, but a growing, adaptable verb, which allows for a faith that reaches beyond inflated successes and into a person’s reality.
  • “Reimagining The Gospel In Relationship, Part 2” http://fulleryouthinstitute.org/articles/part-2-the-gospel-in-relationship   Rather than teaching teenagers about salvation and “the right answers,” in this article, Steve Argue details some steps his student ministry staff completed over one year to capture teens’ imaginations and show them how to live a life that features an active relationship with Jesus.
  • “It’s Time to Define the Relationship With Our Emerging Adults”  http://youthspecialties.com/blog/its-time-to-define-the-relationship-with-our-emerging-adults/   Steven Argue touches on basic steps to take in ministering to emerging adults in your church.
