Day 5

Day 5 is Thursday in the Judeo-Christian calendar.

Thursdays at 7:30, we will create gatherings intended to deepen and expand our spiritual lives.raven-soaring

Day 5 is a bridge between Sundays, so it can provide a sacred time between Sundays. Day 5 is a working day, so it can be a time to study. Day 5 is ordinary time, so it can offer us time to reflect on ordinary things and take them deeper.
