Writing as a Spiritual Practice // Spiritual Formation Group at Duke Divinity School

“Writing as a Spiritual Practice” – Rev. Liz Dowling-Sendor

Christians throughout the centuries have turned to writing as a form of prayer and discernment -- to confess sins, to discover God’s path for them, to become clearer about their own motivations and yearnings. In this small group we will engage in simple writing exercises (no expertise is needed!) to explore the spiritual practice of writing as a way both to examine ourselves and witness to God’s actions in our lives. We will experience the potential of writing for spiritual healing and transformation as we sense more deeply God’s call to us, as we receive support to make choices and face challenges, and as we connect our lives at Duke Divinity with other parts of our lives, past and present. We’ll coordinate schedules to determine our meeting time,

Rev. Liz Dowling-Sendor is an Episcopal priest, certified Spiritual Director, and veteran spiritual formation and retreat leader who has led Care and Discernment Groups in PC 64 and in the Divinity School’s Caring Communities program. She is a writer and editor and former newspaper and magazine journalist. She received the M.Div. from Duke Divinity in 1998.
