A 30-min contemplative service of scripture, prayer, music and a Touchpoint homily by Spirit in the Desert faith mentor, Rev. Jim Hanson.

Wednesday Respite is a 30-min contemplative service featuring scripture, prayer, calming yet stirring music and a Spirited Touchpoint reflection on the Lectionary reading for the following Sunday by Spirit in the Desert faith mentor, Rev. “Bro. Jim” Jim Hanson.

Touchpoint is a reflection on where God’s story touches our life story. It is a short homily based on a biblical story of people in the Old and New Testaments and their relationship with God. Our spiritual ancestors’ experience of God’s grace connects with our lives in the present and our relationship with the Divine.

Pastor Jim Hanson celebrates the Eucharist at this service; all are welcome at the Lord’s table.

Fellowship and a brief discussion of the Touchpoint message follows the service.

Wednesday Respite is held in one of the two beautiful chapels on the campus of Spirit in the Desert Retreat Center in Carefree, Arizona.

All are welcome to Spirit in the Desert for Wednesday Respite. Registration is not required, just come!
