Sunday Forum

9:45 a.m. in the parish hall

Our Sunday Forum series will explore multiple methods of prayer each week that you are invited to “try on” as possibilities to begin or to enrich your own daily spiritual practice.

March 10: Lectio Divina and Visio Divina
Lectio Divina: Reading with the Ear of the Heart
Lectio Divina is an ancient Christian practice in which one reads a small passage of scripture, trusting in God’s presence and relevance in daily experience.  Lectio Divina is not about acquiring head knowledge of Scripture, but is about a personal encounter with the heart of God inspiring one’s attention and already praying through the reader.

Visio Divina: Seeing with the Eye of the Heart
Visio divina shares roots with the ancient practice of lectio divina, inviting one to encounter the divine through images.  A prayerful consideration of and interaction with a photograph in the magazine, icon, piece of art, or other visual representation allows the viewer to experience the sacred in unique and powerful ways.

March 17: Centering Prayer and Walking Meditation
This session in the Lenten discussion of prayer and meditation will focus on two other ways to simply show up with God. One is quiet and still while the other gets us moving in our meditation.    Continue reading
