A Spiritual Autobiography - "The Palm of God's Hand"
This Lent, St. Paul's Ventura offered a Spiritual Autobiography writing course for church members. Twelve members of our congregation registered, and we had a marvelous first meeting before the church's closure due to COVID-19. We were all so disappointed.
In the first session, participants learned about spiritual autobiography. We shared our stories. Then we began writing. The Spirit was moving in that first session. The work that resulted was authentic and remarkable: personal stories, a poem, and even lyrics to a song. What was shared brought many of us to tears. It certainly brought us closer together.
The song writer - Jordan Daniels - is a member of our choir and created and recorded this piece. It's her spiritual autobiography. We thank her for sharing this.
