Creating Space To Be With God

True Christian discipline is the human effort to create the space in which the Spirit of Christ can transform us into his image. – Henri Nouwen

Faithwalking Workshops

Nurture your inner life

What makes a fire burn is space between the logs, a breathing space.” – Judy Brown

In the midst of full and fast rhythms of life in which we find ourselves constantly surrounded by noise and demands, it is hard to make space to be with God. Without space for God there is no air, there is no life, there is no fire burning in the soul. There is no light within to guide us and sustain us.
