Spiritual Journey Group

image1

All are invited to explore the spiritual path more deeply, through listening to the stirrings of Spirit; while gaining insight into the presence and movement of God in our lives.  We will begin this group by delving into Joyce Rupp’s book “Open the Door: A Journey to the True Self”. We will explore how the image of the door can guide us in a process of discovering the true self. Joyce brings new life to the ageless spiritual image of the door, weaving insights from East and West with the wisdom of contemporary spiritual writers, poets, and novelists.  The book is structured as a daily prayer guide for everyday use over six weeks, each day offers a thematic reflection, a guided meditation, an original prayer, a thoughtful question, and a related scripture quote. 


We will meet Wednesdays starting October 23.  Due to the wonderful response, we will now have 2 sessions on Wednesdays...one from 1:00-2:30 and the second from 6:30-8pm.  You may attend either, at any time, as your schedule permits.

Lectio Divina Bible Study

This Bible Study  runs Tuesday mornings 11-12 noon.   Lectio Divina"means "divine reading" and describes a way of reading the Scriptures whereby we gradually let go of our own agenda and open ourselves to what God wants to say to us.  In this bible study we will read a bible passage 3 times and from 3 different translations. The first time it is read, the group members consider a word or a phrase that jumps out at them, and are invited to share that word or phrase if they want. Then a different person from the group would read the passage again with a pause for silence. Different emphases might be suggested after each reading. For example:  What gift does this passage lead me to ask from the Lord?  What does this passage call me to do?
