Exploring the Gospel of John

What does the Gospel of John have to say to us today? Join us and see! Each week, we will focus on 1–2 chapters of John—reading the text and watching associated episodes of a movie by Luwalaga Munzi. All are welcome to this drop-in class led by 7 lay facilitators. Questions? Please contact Norma Williamson. Join the Zoom gathering HERE. More information HERE.


Centering Prayer
Mondays at 1:30 p.m. on Zoom

Please join us for Centering Prayer, a means of Christian meditation that uses a single word for us to rest our attention while we come before the presence of God. This will include a brief check-in, an opening prayer, brief instruction, 20 minutes of silence and then a brief closing prayer. Please follow the link below and follow the prompts. Join the Zoom gathering HERE. More information HERE.


Prayer in Practice
Every other Tuesday; September 8–December 15; 7:00–8:00 p.m. on Zoom

Join us on Tuesday evenings (before Compline) to explore a variety of types of prayer and spiritual practices, with time to practice each one. Some sessions will also enter into short periods of reflection or meditation around personal issues using Scripture, chants, even directed body movements. Sessions will allow plenty of time to move on to Compline at 8:00 p.m. Join the Zoom gathering HERE. More information HERE.


Compline
