Spiritual Discernment at Rolling Ridge


For some, life after COVID has been like resetting a circuit breaker.  Click a switch and it is back to normal.  For others, the pandemic was a life-shattering game changer surfacing questions of why? Where?  What’s next?  No matter where you may be post-COVID, Rolling Ridge is here to help you discern the way forward with three opportunities to strengthen your spiritual life.

We invite you to join us ONLINE on Tuesday, July 27th for “Who Said That? Understanding Discernment.”  Sometimes it is difficult to hear the voice of the Spirit. Through contemplation, this workshop will help you see, hear and feel ‘signs’ that speak to our inner selves and learn to recognize who is speaking, whether our own ego or the “voice” of God.  If you are struggling with spiritual “hard of hearing,” we encourage you to take an extended lunch and join us for this 2 hour online event.

If you are looking for a more personal deep dive into discernment, we invite you to join us for a three-part ONLINE workshop this fall to consider the questions involved with what we are being called to do and to be.  “Discerning: Responding through our Vital Connections” will meet Thursday evenings, October 7, October 14, and November 4 from 6:30-8:30 pm.   Each session will address one of the vital connections involved that allow us to discern and respond to life’s questions and connect us in our personal discovery.  This series also introduces our “Rolling Ridge way” of living a contemplative life and being present to the Divine gift within and without. It’s all about being present to our connections.

Our connections are rooted in the spiritual life, and as Sister Joan Chittister will address THIS SUNDAY, July 18th, the “Spiritual Life: It’s all about relationships.”  There is still time to register for this LIVE hybrid event from 2:00 to 4:30 pm with optional dinner and fellowship.  A Benedictine sister and one of the most influential religious and social leaders of our time, Sister Joan will be offering a light to guide us through this time of contradictory values and upheavals in every major institution and within the hearts of people.  Join us ONSITE at Rolling Ridge and watch the livestream in community, and enjoy small group discussion, private reflection, and optional dinner afterwards. If you are not able to join us in-person, you are invited to watch the presentation ONLINE at home followed by small group sharing with our online Ridge community. Registration closes Friday at 2pm.

Relationships are so key to help us emerge from the pandemic and discern our call.  We hope that you will connect with Rolling Ridge as we move forward as a community into this emerging post-pandemic future.
