The Practice Part Two: [Origin] The Enneagram [With Marilyn Vancil]

  • New Community 1003 East Trent Avenue Spokane, WA, 99202 United States (map)

The Practice is an experimental and practical pathway designed to help us become our true selves for our own sake, the sake of those we love, the sake of the world and the glory of Father, Son and Spirit. As part of this exploration we'll be joined by a variety of friends who are proven practitioners and fellow travelers on the journey of authentic faith. During our gatherings they will help us both consider and try out a formational practice each week.

On Sunday March 12 we'll continue our trek through the first phase, Origin, where we focus on practices that help us engage the story of who we are, whose we are and what we're designed for. Our specific practice for this gathering will be engaging a resource known as The Enneagram, a tool that helps us know ourselves well, which is a theme congruent in the life of Jesus followers throughout the centuries.

“How can you draw close to God when you are far from your own self?"

No one has known God who has not known himself...”

"It is not possible to know God without knowing yourself.
It is not possible to know yourself without knowing God."
- John Calvin

Marilyn Vancil, a friend, author, spiritual director, certified Enneagram professional, wife, mother and grandmother will be our visiting practitioner and guide.
