What we’re about

Is your spiritual journey a little rocky? Or smooth as a walk along the beach? Either way, walking through life is easier and more interesting with others than alone. We are Spiritual Seekers of Ellicott City, and we would love for you to join our meetup. Everyone is welcome.

Our events and activities offer a safe place to explore life’s questions together, practice mindfulness, and engage in deep conversations, or simply bring your spirit and listen. Some of our offerings include:

- Lectio Divina. This ancient practice allows us the opportunity to delve deep into a chosen text. This text may be a poem or a sacred religious text. Each gathering will focus on one text. We will read through the selected text several times, with a different focus on every read-through. We will then pause for several minutes of silent meditation, which will be followed by each person sharing their unique reflection. Rev. Jane Smith, minister of Channing Memorial Church, Unitarian Universalist, will lead this sacred time of meditation and reflection.

Events associated with Spiritual Seekers of Ellicott City are sponsored by Channing Memorial Church, Unitarian Universalist. For the duration of the covid-19 pandemic, all events will be held on Zoom.

Channing Memorial Church is a small, welcoming church of liberal religious worship in Ellicott City. Our mission is to :

           •   Invite seekers into spiritual community,

           •  Connect souls in mystery and wonder, and

           •  Ignite compassion into action.

All are welcome to join us for worship on Zoom every Sunday at 10 AM. If you plan to join us for worship, please take a moment to say hello so that we can properly greet you online:
