Drink from the Well – EMMAUS, Fall 2023

Program Description

Do you recognize:

  • Those times when your soul feels FULL while listening to a powerful piece of music and you feel energized by the experience?
  • The sense of AWE in those quiet, sacred times of life?
  • The sense of WONDER sitting out on a starry night, contemplating the expanse of the universe and God—and your own small place in it?

These experiences are a small taste of the spiritual life. Sometimes, they are how God invites you into a closer relationship! They are ways you can move beyond just believing in God, and begin to “know the love of Christ which surpasses knowledge so that you might be filled with all the fullness of God” as the Apostle Paul described it in Ephesians 3:19.

With the help of a certified spiritual director and learning any number of ways to pray, you can tap into the rich experience of loving God and encounter God’s healing, compassionate love for you.

Drink From the Well

. . . is a ministry from Seeking the Spirit Within: The Nebraska Synod Institute for Spiritual Direction Formation, and is available to all adults wherever you may live.

The “something more” mentioned above? Drink From the Well has been developed to help you access that “something more”; right here, right now! It is a unique opportunity to learn from spiritual directors from around the Nebraska Synod and grow in your experience of the Divine.

Drink From the Well is partnering with Emmaus: Lifelong Learning to offer monthly opportunities centering on prayer practices. Note that each course has a separate registration. Early registration is appreciated as a minimum number of participants is required.

A live, synod-wide webinar will be held on the first Tuesday of each month in fall 2023: September 5, October 3, November 7, December 5 beginning at 7:00pm Central Time.  The webinar will introduce a 90-minute lesson on the spiritual life and a prayer practice, with additional time for Q&A facilitated by Pat Gregory and Emily Wageman.

Your commitment is to:

  • attend the Zoom webinars live. They are recorded in case you have to miss a course. You need to have the Zoom app  downloaded on your device (computer, smartphone or tablet) so you can access the webinars.
  • Try the new prayer practices throughout each month and discover what the Holy Spirit is inviting you to.
  • Attend the next month’s prayer practice and invite a friend to join you!
