Centering Prayer/Meditation 
Wednesdays at 7:15 pm in the Chapel
A brief training on Centering Prayer at 7:15; Meditation begins at 7:30 pm
For centuries Christians practiced contemplative prayer and meditation. Centering Prayer was developed more than a half century ago, to rekindle these transformative practices of early Christianity. All are invited to join our Centering Prayer group led by Lynne Kemp, to explore spaciousness and quiet in the midst of our busy lives.
"The participant's aim is to be present to the Lord, to "consent to God's presence and action during the time of prayer."

Logos - This book group meets once a month in St. Peter's Parlor for discussion as they seek the Christian themes inherent in each work; they meet a second time each month, often in someone’s home, for fellowship. The group meets on the 1st and 3rd Tuesday of each month. The current book being discussed is Listening for God, Vol 2: Contemporary Literature and the Life of Faith ​by Paula J. Carlson.

Wednesday Morning Bible Study in the Parlor, 10:30 am.  NOW COMPLETED FOR THE SEASON.
Having studied how the gospel stories were gathered and remembered, and having looked at each community the gospel writers and Paul spoke of . . . those communities' geographic location, their constituents, their experiences as founding Christians . . . we will discuss short studies of the Four Gospels in the fall. All are welcome into the conversations that unfold.The two books: Ray Brown's The Churches the Apostles Left Behind, and The Community of the Beloved Disciple. 
An extra-fun read:  The Shadow of the Galilean by Gerd Thiessen.  From a Biblical scholar and historian, an inventive recreation of Jesus' ministry footnoted with scriptural references and writings of the historians of the time immediately following that period.
