Current Online Group Offerings

Creative Prayer 5 Week Contemplative Group

We were created to be creative and to commune with God through what we come in contact with in this world. If prayer as you know it has become a struggle, feels like a one sided conversation or is just plain non-existent in the current season of your life this group might be for you. In this 5 week online group we’ll explore prayer through music, images, and poetry as a way for us to talk with God and listen for God’s responses to what rises up as we encounter multiple forms of created beauty. Join us as we lean in with curiosity and hope that a new pathway to intimacy with our Creator will  be revealed. 

 

Dates: Mondays, April 1, 8, 15, 22 and 29

Time: 6:00 pm- 7:00 pm (Pacific)

Location: Zoom

Cost: Free

End of the Month Examen

The prayer of Examen is a unique form of prayer that came out of the life of St Ignatius of Loyola (AD 1491-1556), the founder of the Society of Jesus- The Jesuit Order of priests as we know them today. Ignatius believed that this particular prayer was a gift directly from God, and was meant to be shared with and taught to as many people as possible. Christians through the centuries have discovered how this exercise can open us up to the awareness of God in our day, deepen intimacy with our Creator, and expand our understanding of Him in the details of our lives.

 Join us as we invite the Holy Spirit to take us back over the month and shine His light on the events and circumstances He wants us to notice and doesn't want us to miss. This is an hour-long, guided Examen via Zoom on the last Sunday of each month. This is an ongoing offering and you are welcome to come as your schedule allows.

 

Next Examen Dates: Sundays, February 25, March 24, April 28
Time: 6:00-7:00 PM (PST)

Location: Zoom

Cost: Free

A Space For Lament 

Lament is the ancient spiritual practice of worshiping God by bringing Him the parts of ourselves and our lives that are painful and grievous. Throughout scripture we watch the Patriarchs and Matriarchs of our faith lean into this practice with bold abandon. Through their prayers of Lament they experience a  depth of trust and intimacy our own souls long for. The Source of all life invites us to bring all of our life to Them, and experience growth in our own depth of trust and intimacy as our grief, pain and disappointment are held in Perfect Love. 

You are invited to a safe and supported space to begin exploring the worship practice of Lament. It will be similar to our End of the Month Examen in that it’s come as your schedule allows and as you feel the need. We’ll be guided through a series of prompts to help coax out what the Spirit is inviting us to bring in prayer. Musicians, visual artists, and poets will be joining us with  their works of art as offerings of words and images for us to use as a springboard to express our own grief and pain to God.  

This is an hour-long, guided practice via Zoom offered once per quarter. This is an ongoing offering and you are welcome to come as your schedule allows.
