Opportunities for Weekly Spiritual Formation in the Spring of 2020
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, resuming on January 24, 2020. 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. For information, contact Ginger Butler, vbbutler@gmail.com 

Book and Bible
Meetings are from 10:00 to 11:00 in the Clark Counseling Room every Wednesday, resuming after the Christmas break on January 8, 2020. We will use two books: Sacred Space, compiled by the Jesuits of Ireland, and Holy Envy by Barbara Brown Taylor, Episcopal priest, college professor, writer, and speaker.
