“I want you woven into a tapestry of love, in touch with everything there is to know of God. Then you will have minds confident and at rest, focused on Christ, God’s great mystery. All the richest treasures of wisdom and knowledge are embedded in that mystery and nowhere else. And we’ve been shown the mystery!” (Colossians 2.2–12)

Forgiveness: Finding Peace Through Letting Go
4 Tuesdays, 6:30 – 8:00PM
October 23 – November 13
Led by Brian Sayers
There is nothing more crippling than holding on to anger. Anger, more than any other emotion, has the power to consume all aspects of our lives, distort our sense of purpose, and destroy our relationship with God. Revelation comes when we realize that forgiveness is a gift we give ourselves rather than to someone else and that only when we learn to forgive others and ourselves can we truly receive forgiveness from God.
Centering Prayer Introductory Workshop
Saturday, November 10
9:00AM – 3:00PM
Led by Jan Reed
Register by November 7 >
Contemplative prayer is a method of silent prayer that prepares us to experience God’s presence within us. It has been part of our Christian heritage for centuries. This type of prayer can add depth of meaning to all prayer and may profoundly affect our daily lives, leading to interior transformation.
This workshop explains the gift of contemplative prayer and how it deepens our relationship to God. The method of Centering Prayer will be presented and time will be allowed for practice of the prayer. After the Saturday meeting, there will be six Wednesday night meetings at 7pm to help establish a daily prayer practice and cultivate a weekly centering prayer group.
The $20 fee includes a copy of Thomas Keating’s book “Open Mind, Open Heart” and lunch. Please register by Wednesday, November 7.
