Monthly themes

The monthly themes featured in our weekly sharing are listed below. They correspond to many of the chapters in the latest book by Christine Valters Paintner, “The Soul’s Slow Ripening: 12 Celtic Practices for Seeking the Sacred.”  In December and March, we will take a pause from the book to focus on Advent and Lent, during which we will share readings and reflections similar to what was presented at Kairos Advent Days.
