Event description


Spiritual Pairings

Guided by LBPC’s own Sandra Borror

A series of explorations to rediscover early saints, philosophers, theologians, and teachers who influenced the development of the Christian Church. While some had ideas that may seem archaic, you may be surprised to find wisdom nuggets and inspiration that are still relevant today. At each meeting, we’ll explore a pair of teachers and their common themes.

Join us for this FREE 8-session series at Lower Brandywine Presbyterian Church that typically meets every fourth Tuesday at 7:00 pm. Our next session starts November 27, 2018. (The January meeting will take place on the THIRD Tuesday, the 15th.)


September 25 Desert Fathers and Mothers
October 23 Augustine and Benedict
November 27 Francis and Clare
December No Meeting
January 15 Bonaventure and Dante’s Divine Comedy (Note: 3rd Tues)
February 26 Martin Luther and Ignatius of Loyola

April 23 Francis de Sales and Jane de Chantal

Sandra Borror:

Sandra Borror holds a Certificate in Spiritual Direction from Neumann University. During her coursework she studied the spirituality of these early teachers in some depth, however, she does not claim any expertise! She is delighted to be a “Spiritual Sacagawea” and travel with you on this adventure through the centuries!

Jane de Chantal and Francis de Sales
