Are your celebrations, traditions, and significant life transitions as meaningful as you'd like them to be? Some holiday gatherings tend towards the superficial and overly-commercial, and there are many moments (career changes, miscarriages, beginning adolescence or adulthood, divorce, adoption, health scares, and many more) that don't typically have traditions or rituals associated with them. There is great potential in all of these "holy days" to fill our lives with meaning, process our emotions, strengthen connections, and to celebrate our values.

Read "Make it Holy: Celebrating SK Day" for some of Joe's thoughts on the purpose and benefits of rituals and celebrations, a sample gathering to celebrate "Saskatchewan Day", and some workshop scenarios to spark ideas for creating your own rituals or listen below.

 

What is God up to on the farm these days? Remembering, nourishing, rooting, and surprising. At least, that's what we found on our trip to the farm. What will you hear?

Where does God show up in your family? If you talk about faith directly, how does that come up and how does the conversation usually go? How do we shape our family spaces to nurture healthy spirituality for young ones, old ones, and in-between ones? And what are our purposes and objectives in that, anyway? Our answers to those questions are as different as our families, but hopefully sharing ideas may spark some new patterns and intentions in these relationships with the people that matter most to us!

Our worship service on this day was a blend of lectures, exercises, and conversations. Some of Joe's talking and a guided individual exercise is included in the audio below, and the pdf also includes written resources and practical suggestions for sparking spirituality in our family spaces.
