Christian Meditation
Mar 6 @ 5:00 pm – 5:45 pm

Following the Christian Meditation tradition of contemplative prayer, we gather to sit in silence and stillness for twenty minutes, focusing on a prayer word and repeating it interiorly and faithfully, as we enter the prayer of Jesus Christ. We also listen to a recording by teachers in this tradition (eg. John Main, Laurence Freeman), and reflect together briefly on this practice of prayer and our understanding of it. This time together provides an oasis of calm and concentration in a busy life of distraction and rapid mobility.

Ash Wednesday worship (Ottawa Lutherans)
Mar 6 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm

With Imposition of Ashes — a ritual to ground us in our humanity — and Holy Communion to remind us that God in Jesus walks with us on our earthly and sometimes painful journey through life and death.

This year, congregations of the Ottawa Ministry Area (Ottawa Lutherans) are gathering together to worship on Ash Wednesday, at two locations and at different times in the day; first, Resurrection Lutheran Church, Orleans (1325 Gaultois Ave) at 1pm; then at Faith for 7pm, and finally at St Peter’s Lutheran Church (400 Sparks St) at 7:30pm.

This worship service is a ministry of Ottawa Lutherans.

Lectionary (Bible) study

Focus text for Monday, March 18, 2019:

Luke 13:1-9 (in preparation for Lent 3C, Sunday, March 24).

A lectionary-based study of the bible focuses on one of the prescribed scriptures for the following Sunday, according to the Revised Common Lectionary (RCL). We follow a format called ‘lectio divina’ which is a holy, prayerful reading, and re-reading of the text.
