As the days begin to shorten through the fall and winter, we turn
toward the Light with a new year of program offerings. We anticipate the
celebration of Christ’s Incarnation, in the fullness of our daily lives as we
seek to follow Him. For the past few years, September has marked not only the
beginning of our semester-long courses, but also the initial gathering of the
year-long spiritual direction groups that meet every month through May. The light
from those praying groups touches those around them, including those of us here
at New College Berkeley who know that they are praying together.Consider participating in one of these groups
as a way of praying through the year with other Christians.
Each New College Berkeley program offers an opportunity to set our
hearts to seek Christ. The company of others helps us do that. The focus of the
programs also helps us do so,whether
the focus is on writing our journeys, studying Hebrew Scripture, understanding
spiritual disciplines, or coming together for a retreat or a lecture. Study is
a spiritual discipline, one in which many of us become rusty when the years of
our formal education end. In NCB programs you’ll study with lay Christians,
seekers, and seminary
students. Together we become partners in prayer while studying the Word that
