Spiritual Life Commission
at Christ Church
The purpose of Spiritual Life Commission is to provide nourishment for our souls and to provide ways to strengthen our faith over the Church year.
The SLC coordinates many programs throughout the year. For example, they organize the weekly Prayers of the People by members of the congregation for the Sunday services, as well as provide an annual inspirational theme for Christ Church.
During a typical year, they also sponsor an Advent Quiet Day, coordinate a Christmas Gathering in Old Brick, present a Lenten Reflection Day, organize a 5-week, Wednesday Night Lenten Supper Series with invited presenters, curate, and publish a yearly Lenten Meditation Book (more than 75 pages this past year), as well as design and host a weekend family retreat in October at the DuPont Center in Rehoboth, Delaware.
Through these gatherings, the SLC aims to help build community and inspiration around each and every Christ Church parishioner. If you would like to know more or learn how you can be a part of the SLC in the future, please email us.
"BE A JOYFUL GIFT TO OTHERS"
CHRIST CHURCH'S SPIRITUAL LIFE THEME FOR 2024
Romans 12:6-8 and 2 Corinthians 9:7
All of us desire to bring happiness to others, especially our family, friends, and people whom we encounter along the way in our daily lives. The sparkle of acknowledgement and connection that is present in the eyes of others brings joy to both the giver and the recipient. The gift of joy brings optimism that transforms our perspective on life. Joy helps us to be resilient, to bounce back from disappointment and adversity. Deep joy leads to lasting gratitude for the beauty, love, and endless possibilities all around us.
Joy often promotes generosity of personal resources, giving of your time and talents to others. With a joyful spirit, we realize that every moment is unique, and every detail is precious. Joy brightens our mood and brings smiles, laughter, and light into our souls.
Our spiritual gifts are varied and profound, such as serving, teaching, encouraging, leading, giving and speaking out in faith. Joy is a true expression of God’s love and inner peace. Let us spread joy throughout the world!
