One of my favorite books is “Out of the Ordinary” by Joyce Rupp.  This book has resources for every church season including Ordinary time.  You can find Joyce Rupp’s Spiritual Reflections on her web site.

MN Conference has a Spiritual Growth Retreat every other year.

Look for ways to encourage Spiritual Growth.  Some ideas are, having a Prayer Chain, Prayer Partners, offer suggestions for daily Devotions such as the Upper Room and Prayer Calendar.  Encourage your Circle/s or Unit to use the Spiritual Growth Study within their group. (This year the study is “Living Sacramentally, Walking Justly”)   Encourage reading the Bible.  There are web sites for plans to read through the Bible in one year at “The Blue Letter Bible” and The American Bible Society has a plan for reading the bible according to the liturgical seasons of the church year.  These are shorter readings than the Blue Letter plan.
