leave a comment »

On Monday, January 26th at 7:00 p.m. Southport Christian Church will host Rev. Dr. Donna Schaper, Senior Minister of Judson Memorial Church in New York City and the author of Sabbath Keeping

Dr. Schaper will be sharing ways to incorporate the practice of Sabbath into your daily life.  By practicing Sabbath, people gain an opportunity to deepen and revitalize their experience of living each day fully.

Rev. Jennifer Steele-Lantis, an associate minister at Southport, explored the theme of Sabbath during her three month sabbatical leave.  The presentation by Dr. Schaper is funded by a portion of the Eli Lilly Clergy Renewal Grant awarded to both Rev. Steele-Lantis and her husband, Stephen.  Using the grant money in this way allow the church to engage in a time of personal growth and renewal.

There is no cost to attend, and the event is open to others outside of Southport Christian Church.  Anyone wishing to attend must sign up so that the church can plan for childcare and refreshments. Please call 784-4431 to reserve a spot.

Southport Christian Church is located at 201 E. Epler Ave. in Indianapolis.
