Mission: To develop the spiritual health and fitness of individuals and groups
Programs: Education online; bog chapel conducted three weekly study groups via the web. The assignments require reading a set of passages from biblical scripture or other writing, then listening to the answers to three questions: a. What, god, (as you understand god), are you saying to my heart? B. What, god, is my respondse to this? C. What, god, would you particularly like me to remember? These questions and answers are then posted via email with replies and interpretation of the hearings by the executive director jane wolfe.
education through written documents; bog chapel staff and board members write for bog chapel, and other organizations using the bog chapel method of understanding and maturing spirituality. These publications appear in church and secular publications of methodist, presbyterian, ucc and episcopal denominations, as well as other professional journals of social work, wellness, etc.
education, person-to-person live! Classes; bog chapel staff and board members teach lots of classes for their own denominations and for seculard audiences. These classes are on spiritual growth and development. They reach back to uncover and clarify what spiritual life is, then proceed onto how to engage and develop the spritiual realities within each one of us. Courses in 2017 included classes on peace taught through the woodstock learning laboratory and classes on forgiveness and healing. Spiritual direction: this is a major work of bog chapel: helping people who want to get their spiritual lives in some kind of order and appointments are made with the spriritual director for weekly, monthly or multi-day retreats.
