The Blessing Center is a non-profit ministry of spiritual nurture and formation which is particularly attentive to children and teens, whose spiritual needs deserve as much consideration as their physical, emotional and intellectual lives. We understand children to be born in the image of God (imago dei), and possessing spirituality, connectedness with God. We assert that it is necessary to actively encourage their innate spirituality in order for them to grow to be all they can be. Our approach to nurture is based upon research and practice. It is primarily focused upon teaching about and practicing three actions: Holy Listening, Prayer, and Blessing, in the context of a caring community.
