Rumination is characterized by repetitive, intrusive, and often negative thoughts or worries. It involves dwelling on problems, regrets, or perceived failures, which can lead to heightened stress, anxiety, and a sense of spiritual unease. Overcoming rumination through mindfulness, positive reframing, meaningful activities, social support, and professional help can lead to a more robust spirituality.

One remedy for rumination is contemplative meditation. Imagine your body and body of affairs gaining the benefits of meditating on a spiritual concept just out of your comprehension.

Join guest speaker Reverend Bonnie Barnard this Sunday for a lesson about expanding the Spiritual Space around you by giving up worry and investing instead in contemplation.

You can join us in person or watch the service on our live stream feed.

Our ensemble features vocals by Julie Croteau, and Debbie Raby. They will be accompanied by LeeAnn Aerlyn-Moore and Jim Turner.
