Abstract
This is a proposal to enrich a tried-and-true spiritual gifts workshop typically offered by Episcopal parish clergy for discerning New Testament spiritual gifts that may be seeking expression in parishioners' lives. They are fine as far as they go, but simply do not go far enough. This proposal suggests an introduction that could be used for any spiritual life workshop whether it is for New Testament gifts; theological virtues; character education (cardinal virtues), or centering prayer. All of them need each other for the full spiritual maturation of the Body and bodies of Christ.
