Meditation

Reverend Mandy has practiced meditation with Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh and Jon Kabat-Zinn, both of whom are best known for their work in mindfulness. In the most basic terms, mindfulness is the art of paying attention. It is being present in the here and now, embracing the present moment for what it is and responding to current situations with awareness and intention. Reverend Mandy believes the practice of mindfulness is crucial to enjoying the life you are leading and creating a future that fulfills your dreams.

Spiritual Direction

Spiritual Direction

Spiritual direction is really a journey of spiritual companioning. As you walk through the twists and turns of this life, it is helpful to have someone remind you of who you are, as well as someone who can accompany you to becoming your best self. While it is easy to doubt the presence of God in difficult times, a Spiritual Director can assist you in hearing God’s voice and discerning God’s will for your life.

Through the Wilderness and Into the Promised Land

February 19, 2013

In 1987, the humorous and classic fairy tale, The Princess Bride, was released. This movie has won the hearts of millions with its interesting plot points and clever lines, but the part relevant to us today is the Fire Swamp scene. In order for Princess Buttercup and her love, Westley, to get away from the bad guys, they have to go through the Fire Swamp, which is a scary place with firebursts that shoot out from nowhere ready to burn you at any given moment, R.O.U.S.’s or rodents of unusual size, which are ready to attack and eat you at any given moment, and quicksand that threatens to swallow you up if you should step into it at any given moment. The Fire Swamp is a wilderness indeed.
