We welcome participants onsite and online at 10am on Sunday, for worship including Holy Communion. Every in-person service will be live-streamed and accessed via our website www.faithottawa.ca and our YouTube account for a few weeks thereafter.
We read a scripture assigned to the following Sunday, according to the Revised Common Lectionary. If you would like to know the precise scripture reference for the coming session, or would like to join the online group, please contact Pastor Martin. (email@example.com).
In the hour we are together we follow the practice of lectio divina (a prayerful, reflective reading of the scripture), hearing the text three times and asking each time a different question of the text and of ourselves:
- What word or phrase or image first speaks to you? (Hear)
- What is God/Jesus/the Word saying to you? What is the important meaning you discover in this text? (Reflect)
- What is God/Jesus/the Word calling you to do? (Respond)
A joint initiative between Faith Lutheran Church and Julian of Norwich Anglican Church in west-end Ottawa, we pray in the contemplative tradition of Christian Meditation first taught by John Main and current director of the World Community for Christian Meditation, Laurence Freeman. If you would like to join this online group please contact Pastor Martin Malina (firstname.lastname@example.org). If you would like more information about how to pray in this tradition, please visit www.wccm.org and www.wccm-canada.ca.
