Elemental Practices for Abundant Living
Sundays, March 2-April 23
A series exploring the wisdom of Jesus, particularly as it translates into practices for living well today. Practices include PRAYER, LETTING GO, QUIETING THE JUDGMENTAL VOICE, ASK…SEEK…KNOCK, and DO UNTO OTHERS, etc. We’ll add information about each week below, so continue to check this page.
- Sunday, March 2: PRAYER. This is a big topic because there are as many ways to pray as there are people. Because prayer encompasses so much, we will do as Jesus recommends, and limit the words we use to talk about prayer and instead experience it with one another. One of the ways many of us connect with God is through music, so on Sunday, March 2, we’ll change our routine a bit and have the chance to experience a more open space of singing and prayer. We’ll sing simple, beautiful songs from the Taize community in France and allow for a good amount of silence, including a time to speak our prayers and share a simple communion meal with each other. Prayer is an intimate activity: a dance with the divine. It happens within each of us, but it is also ultimately an experience that connects us not only to God, but to people and places outside of ourselves. It is a Self-expanding endeavor. Come grow with us!
