Focus text for Monday, October 7, 2019:

Deuteronomy 26:1-11 (in preparation for Thanksgiving Sunday, October 13)

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.

Christian Meditation
Oct 9 @ 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.
