Weekly Contemplative Service
Every Wednesday at 3:00 p.m. online and 4:00 p.m. in person on campus, Spirit in the Desert offers Wednesday Respite, a mid-week oasis of music, Touchpoint meditation, Holy Communion and being in community. When Spirit is hosting guests, Wednesday Respite is for anyone on the campus of Spirit in the Desert and for people in the neighborhood and surrounding area. The service is held in one of Spirit in the Desert’s chapels, both of which have peaceful and majestic views of the Creator’s Sonoran Mountains.

Everyone, of any faith or no faith, is welcome to experience moments of silent meditation, quieting music, scripture, prayer, a Touchpoint meditation, and Communion.
Touchpoint is a reflection on where God touches our life story. It is a short homily by Spirit in the Desert Faith Mentor, Rev. “Bro. Jim” Hanson, 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.
