Adult Christian Education
Opportunities for Weekly Spiritual Formation
The two groups listed below offer different approaches to prayer and spiritual formation. Both have been used for centuries in Christian tradition. “Reflection and Meditation” is based on Centering Prayer, a type of contemplative prayer that seeks to experience God’s presence in silence, without words or images. “Book and Bible” is based on Ignatian Spirituality, which encourages the use of the imagination and conversation with God. Both are tools for the spiritual journey and complement each other. You are welcome to attend one or both groups.
Reflection and Meditation
Meetings will be 1:00 to 2:00 in the Becket Chapel on the 1st and 3rd Fridays of each month. Each session will include two parts – shared reflections about a piece of writing that will be distributed, followed by a silent time of Centering Prayer. Everyone is invited. Come when you can. The group will not meet during the Christmas/New Year break. For information, contact Ginger Butler, email@example.com .
Bible and Book
Meetings will be 10:00 to 11:00 in the Clark Counseling Room every Wednesday, beginning September 11th. We will use two books in the fall: Sacred Space, compiled by the Jesuits of Ireland, and The Time Is Now by Joan Chittister, Benedictine nun, author, retreat leader, and theologian. The group will not meet during the Christmas/New Year break. For Information, contact Ann Rose, firstname.lastname@example.org .
