The Spiritual Memoir Worship Series follows similar themes as the Prayer Bench Small Group Study, StoryTellers. It would work well to run the study and the series at the same time, with the study following worship. But they are not so tied to one another that it is also possible to host the small group study and develop it further through the worship series. You might also introduce the theme of Spiritual Memoir in worship and follow up by offering the Small Group Study.

We are grateful for the generosity of The United Church of Canada through a Seeds of Hope Grant and the Maritime Conference Bequest Fund for their financial support of the Project. It allows us to offer this first Worship Service free of charge and subsidize the price of the package.
