Inward-Outward Journey Group 

The farther the outward journey takes you, the deeper the inward journey must be. -Henri Nouwen

Simply stated, the outward journey is our life of action and service, while the inward journey is our life of faith and spirituality.  The imagery of the inward and outward journeys is based on the root image of Judaism and Christianity - the temple. In this group, we will take this image seriously and use it as a way of understanding a "contempling" life that has inward (reflection and prayer) as well as outward dimensions (service and action). Using biblical texts, classical Christian spiritual writings and modern Christian authors, participants will explore the inward-outward journey and learn practical tools for forming an identity as a contemplative worker, servant, and leader in the world. The gruop will meet for five weeks during the season of Lent. Juniors and seniors are especially encouraged to register, but first year and sophomore students will be welcome.
