Chattanooga House of Prayer is hosting their next Rhythms Retreat on Saturday from 9 a.m. – noon at Chattanooga House of Prayer, 3912 Dayton Blvd. in Red Bank. Chattanooga House of Prayer developed the Rhythms series in 2018 to support those who were seeking to find balance and strengthen their spiritual journey.  

The retreats have been held over the course of a year and include teaching, discussions, and practice of a particular spiritual discipline. During this yearlong journey, participants explore spiritual practices that cultivate intimacy with Christ, nourish their soul, and ultimately transform their life, said officials. Participants have been encouraged to attend all nine retreats; however, each retreat can stand alone. This month’s Rhythm session is entitled The Examen - Bringing My Whole Self to God.

The cost to register is $20. The retreat is open to the public and men and women of all ages are invited to attend. To register or for more information, visit www.chatthop.org or contact Micki Ann Harris, ChattHOP’s spiritual formation director, at mickiann@chatthop.org.

Roy Exum: Who Is This ‘New Voice’?

It’s easy for me to say that I either know, or know about, almost every person running in November for the state legislature.
