SPIRITUAL LIFE

Ash Wednesday | spirituallife@gisthailand.org
Wednesday, March 2nd is Ash Wednesday. This is a historic day in the Christian tradition where followers of Jesus remember our mortality as we look forward to celebrating how Jesus defeated sin and death on Easter. We will have opportunities for Secondary students to receive ash if they would like to.

This week’s episode (released on Friday, Feb.25) is a conversation about prayer. Available wherever you listen to podcasts.

Resources for Students’ Faith Journeys| spirituallife@gisthailand.org
We want to pair our podcast with tools to help students implement spiritual rhythms in their lives. We’ve created a section on “Prayer” with few basic practices to help students explore the topic. You can find these resources and others on our Spiritual Life Website.
