Living Compass for Adults

A Living Compass wellness ministry can include an array of offerings to support the health and wellness of the adults in your congregation. We recommend a layperson or clergy person attend a Congregational Wellness Advocate Training at the Nicholas Center to learn more about bringing Living Compass into your community. CWA Training.

Living Compass Daily Readings for the Season of Advent and Lent are booklets newly created each year that contain readings and reflections for each day of Lent and Advent, which connect the Scriptures of the week to a life of wellness in the 21st century. These booklets can be used by individuals as a spiritual practice, in a small group setting, or by an entire parish.
