Feb 27, 2014 03:24AM
ARC Sacred Center of Monroe is launching its new “A Joyful Path - The Inner Wisdom Series” spirituality program for children, aiming to connect them with an authentic spiritual experience that is inter-spiritual, creative and multi-layered.
A Joyful Path is a progressive Christian interfaith, behavior-over-belief curriculum that teaches interdependence, self-awareness, respect for nature, stillness, forgiveness, prayer, meditation and integrity. Using the Bible and other wisdom texts and stories, the program helps children learn how to follow a spiritual path in today’s world. The first class will be limited to 10 students, ages 6 to 10. The program is being run by Rev. Christine Guerrera, LMFT, ARC Sacred Center’s Spiritual Director, Interfaith Minister and Spiritual Psychotherapist.
“As an interfaith minister, I have come across many parents who, like me, have been seeking a program that offers the opportunity to their children to explore spirituality in an open, loving and interfaith way. Because I feel this is so important to children in our competitive culture of busy-ness and over-scheduled living, I thought I would explore curricula to begin the process of creating a community of like-minded parents, families and children to enrich and empower our children’s spiritual paths,” stated Guerrera.
To learn more about the program or to reserve a spot, call Rev. Chris at 203-268-1272 or email to [email protected]. ARC Sacred Center is located at 458 Monroe Tpke, Monroe. See ad, page 14.
