O God, you are my God, I seek you,
My soul thirsts for you;
My flesh faints for you,
as in a dry and weary land
Where there is no water.
Psalm 63:1

How can we grow our thirsty spirits?  Through the practices of:
Prayer, Worship, Study, Sabbath, Compassion, Service, Working for Justice & Peace.

What is spirituality?
There are many definitions. Here’s a good one: Spirituality is how we relate to God, others, ourselves, creation, and even the entire cosmos. One thing about all healthy relationships is that they take time, attention, and energy to grow. Personal, community, and global transformation all hinge on lifelong spiritual growth. When you grow your spirit, you help to grow the realm of God on earth.

There are so many books on spirituality.  Some are better than others.
