The goal of The Faith-ing Project is to enrich your spiritual life. Our hope is that this might be a gymnasium for the soul; a library for the spirit; and a toy store for the psyche.
On January 20th, The Faith-ing Project will be joining with The Pilgrimage. In place of a January email campaign, we will be joining that community for a 3-week exploration called ‘God Breathed.’ 1 spiritual reading and 2 exercises will be posted each week. The Pilgrimage’s Mighty Networks platform features some great opportunities to connect. I hope you will join us. To join this free oppurtunity, email firstname.lastname@example.org or fill out the contact form on this page.
