Afternoon Bible Break
A bi-weekly bible study to refresh your spirit
Looking for something to brighten your winter days? Have you considered scripture study? Join our small group as we dig into Matthew 26-28: Jesus’ Life-Giving Death, through a guided 6 week study. This study offers a close look at the passion, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ in Matthew’s Gospel, a wonderful lead up to Holy Week 2021.
Wednesdays 12:30-2pm Jan. 13, 27, Feb. 10, 24, Mar. 10, 24 via Zoom.
Questions about Zoom or the study? Call Carmen Gray 832-4164.
To register and purchase a book ($9) call the Parish office 835-6777 or email email@example.com.
Art Reflections provides an opportunity to see and discuss the visual arts, to recognize the sacred in the secular. We begin with Visio Divina followed by some casual, some prepared discussions of Art in our lives. Meets the 3rd Wednesday of the month at 6:00-7:30pm in the Lounge.
The imagination works through suggestion, not description. Description is always direct and frequently closes off what it names. Suggestion respects the mystery and richness of a thing. All it offers are clues to its nature. Suggestion keeps the mystery open and extends us the courtesy of inviting us to see the thing for ourselves. It offers us the hospitality and freedom to trust the integrity of our own encounter with a thing. This is how a work of art can allow itself to be seen in so many different and often conflicting ways. It does not foreclose on the adventure of revelation. —John O’Donohue
Gail Fitzpatrick-Hopler offers a wonderful invitation into visio divina (or sacred seeing). I invite you to try this image for a meditation experience, as a window into your own soul and the Divine.
