Spiritual Literacy: 
Recognizing the Sacred in Each Other and Everyday Life
Based on the Spiritual Alphabet developed by Frederic and Mary Brussat, this seven-week series will explore spiritual practices that cultivate our ability to see the sacred in our midst. Such practices are not the property of any particular religion; instead, they are the basis of a healthy spiritual life for people of all religions, those of no religion, and those who consider themselves “spiritual but not religious.” This series is open to everyone.
