10:00 am - 12:00 pm
In this Evensong series, participants will explore individual life journeys through sharing thoughts, experiences, doubts, and beliefs. We will meet on Saturdays from 10AM to Noon at the church.
Again, each week we will follow an order of service with the central event being a sharing time. We will be listening attentively and without interruption to one another. Listening is at the core of Evensong.
Here is our plan:
Aug. 4 Gathering 1, Childhood Memory and Knowing
Aug. 11 Gathering 2, Scripture and Story
Aug. 18 Gathering 3, Prayer and Spiritual Practice
Aug. 25 Gathering 4, Fear
Labor Day Weekend (no Gathering on Sept.1)
Sept. 8 Gathering 5, Generosity
Sept. 15 Gathering 6, Hospitality and the Stranger
Sept. 22 Gathering 7, Being Alive
Sept. 29 Gathering 8, Beliefs and Actions
Evensong is a good way to explore personal beliefs and possibilities and a great way to get to know a group of people.
There is no fee for Evensong. To register, call email firstname.lastname@example.org.
For our first gathering, please bring an object, memento, photograph, or drawing that reminds you of a truth you knew as a child that has served you well through life, a truth, a knowing, for which you are grateful. Try to think of a deep understanding, or truth you knew as a child, even if your childhood situation was difficult. Was there a strength that, as a child, you found in yourself?
