SAUGUS — Meditation. Yoga. Long walks in the woods. Listening to waves crashing on a beach. People are finding different ways to nurture their spirituality outside of a traditional church service.
A new book club called Into the Mystic is being launched by religious leaders in town to provide another place where spirituality can be found. Participants will read both classic and contemporary spiritual authors from across world traditions, listen to poets and musicians who tap into something deep within and beyond themselves for inspiration, and learn how connections to the holy mystery are made in more ways than we may know.
The group will meet on the second and fourth Wednesdays of each month, from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. at First Congregational Church UCC, 300 Central Street.
Leaders will be Rev. Martha Leahy, Cynthia Turco, and Terri Leander. The first meeting will be on Wednesday, Sept. 12. The first book will be “Deep in the Familiar: Four Life Rhythms” by Joan C. Borton. It would work best if the book is purchased and brought to our first meeting. All are welcome to attend and take a deep dive Into the Mystic.
