The Program: We'll reflect on Evelyn Underhill's understanding of our three duties - adoration, awe and service - and explore how that applies in our own lives.How our service is transformed by awe and adoration. Rabbi Heschel understood Psalm 111:10 to say, “the awe of God is the beginning of wisdom." This is wisdom grounded in being overwhelmed, confused, enchanted, afraid, fully alive, and living within a grand mystery. Adoration is giving ourselves to the joy of being in the Presence of God. Wisdom and joy making us new and purifying our service. 

How have we each experienced these things? How has it changed us? How might we open ourselves to awe and adoration?

Elements of the Program:

  1. Morning Prayer
  2. A way of thinking about it – a model, theory
  3. Experiential learning – reflection and learning from your experience
  4. A spiritual practice or two to use

  7. A booklet, book, or packet to take away
