Blogging the Spirit: Adventures in Spirituality on the Last Sunday of the Month
How do you connect to God? Are there practices or pieces of art or music or liturgy that evoke this relationship?
Is there a book or poem that ‘gets you’ every time, or a writer who sparks you in those hard moments?
Do you find this connection through trees, the changing of seasons, the cycle of the moon?
In a previous post, I discussed the desire to expand my mostly classic literature blog to reflect the variety of books I read. A brief exchange in the comments regarding religion and spirituality has prompted me to create an informal monthly event shared across social media.
Books, Art, Photography, Music, Poetry, Liturgy, Creativity
Some suggestions: a book review, a personal post on a particular practice, share a photo or piece of art. Is there a word or phrase or passage from your liturgy or spiritual books that you find beautiful? Does a particular melody or a song connect you to God every time you hear it?
If you don’t believe in God or religion but you are inspired by life share, too.
Jews, Christians, Muslims, Hindus, Buddhists, Atheists, Pagans, Heathens, Druids, Wiccans, Tree-Huggers, Mother Nature Lovers, Those-Inspired-by-Life. Everyone is welcome!
We can find each other with the hashtag #BloggingTheSpirit to use on Twitter and Instagram and other social media. I will also put up a connecting post on my blog at 12am (PDT) on the last Sunday of the month where you can use the comment section to share the url to your post.
Please share this post on your blog, Instagram, Twitter, wherever you have social media, if you or someone you know is interested.
On the last Sunday of the month:
~post to your blog or wherever you have social media and use the hashtag #BloggingTheSpirit on Twitter or Instagram
~come here for the ‘connecting post’ which will be my only post on that day and share the url to your offering in the comments
~click on various urls that interest you and make connections
See you on September 24th!
