“A friend, mother, lifelong partner to her husband, pastor, co-founder of her church, writer, community advocate, student, and follower of Jesus” is how the Rev. Jeff Eddings introduced his conversation partner, Leeann Younger, in Wednesday evening’s third installment of his seminar series The Way of Spiritual Fortitude. Presented by 1001 New Worshipping Communities, the online conversations are designed to help spiritual leaders develop the inner strength to perform the tasks of ministry.
“How good it is to center down! To sit quietly and see one’s self pass by!”
With these words the Rev. Jeff Eddings opened Wednesday’s The Way of Spiritual Fortitude, quoting a mediation from theologian and mystic the Rev. Dr. Howard Thurman.
What is fortitude?
In the context of an upcoming seminar series presented by 1001 New Worshiping Communities, it’s the “mental, emotional and spiritual strength to bear pain and encounter adversity or temptation with courage.”
