The Road Back to You: Enneagram Study

We will begin our Wednesday evening study of the Enneagram tonight! Join us from 6:30-8:00 for a light meal and conversation reflecting on Suzanne Stabile and Ian Morgan Cron’s “The Road Back to You”. Whether you are a new learner or have worked with the Enneagram in the past, you are welcome to come and be a part of this discussion as we learn the ways each of the nine personality types view the world.

A light brunch will be provided; please RSVP by calling the church office if you plan to attend so we can prepare enough food ahead of time, and let us know of any allergies or dietary restrictions!

If you have your own journal, please bring it with you. We will have extras on hand for those who come without.

Call the church with any questions.

Lenten Sermon Series: The Road Back to You

Lent is a season that invites us to draw inward, to take a closer look at the patterns of our lives. Some patterns bring us new life and energy, others may give us pause, while some may cause relationships, work, and life to be more challenging.  Through this season, we offer an invitation to draw deeper into ourselves without judgment to move towards wholeness and goodness as God’s beloved as we work through the Enneagram.

Over the next few weeks we will offer some different questions and invitations from the Enneagram. This ancient personality type system offers us new insights into ourselves and the lens by which others see the world.  In The Road Back to You by Ian Morgan Cron and Suzanne Stabile we find a practical approach to use the Enneagram for our spiritual lives and ways of gaining more knowledge about ourselves and finding compassion for others.

Cron and Stabile write, “By challenging us to bravely explore who we really are, the Enneagram helps us to recognize and overcome self-defeating patterns of behavior and to become our most authentic selves.”

Join us on Sunday mornings at 9am for conversations about the Enneagram, 10am worship, and 6:30pm on Wednesday nights as we dig deeper into the book The Road Back to You.  Books can be purchased on Amazon and a few will be available on Wednesday nights.  Class and a light meal will be provided on Wednesday nights from March 8th to April 5th.
