The hope is to form a covenant group, journeying together through Lent. We will draw our bearings from the practice of Centering Prayer and sacred reading of scripture (Lectio Divina), as experiences within the Christian tradition and being reclaimed through the contemporary voices of Rev. Cynthia Bourgeault and Father Richard Rohr.
Our covenant will be to honor the openness of our hearts in sharing this time and experience together. It is envisioned that this Lenten journey will be two-fold: to meet once a week as a group and, as we are able, to give intention and attention to these practices within our own lives.
The scheduled group time will meet on Tuesdays for six weeks, starting February 20th through to March 27, from 10:00 to 11:00 a.m., at the Gifford Hospital chapel. (Use the main visitor entrance, turning right at the first corridor.)
Our time together will include,
- Welcoming and check-in
- Centering Prayer ~ initially about five minutes and, as the group becomes more familiar/comfortable with this practice, allowing this experience to broaden towards a longer period.
- Presentation and discussion on the contemplative experience and Lectio Divina as practices from the early church still relevant to one’s life today, scriptural context and what today’s prophetic voices are saying to again turn our attention towards these traditions.
- Closing and concluding Centering Prayer
To participate in this covenant group, please call Jeanne Ward (234-9218) or David Palmer (728-5431).
