Christian Literary Club Meeting

Please join us for the Christian Literary Club on Saturday, February 24th,  at 19.00 (7pm). We are a group that meets to read and explore the diverse facets of our faith as found in literature.  New participants are always welcome—thus a heartfelt invitation to all who are interested in discovering great, faith-based texts. Our topic for the upcoming meeting:   Our choice is to be guided by either fear of sliding into error to become a loser, or hope to be holding on to truth and be a winner. To assist us finding a healthy rational position, the CLC will study the famous text: William James, "The Will to Believe"

For info on the location, contact Sharon (see below).

Tuesday Evening Lectio Divina Group - Diving into the Sunday Readings

The traditional monastic practice of Lectio Divina (Latin for “holy/divine reading”) provides a way to enter into Sacred Scripture as a living Word for our time. Lectio Divina becomes more about divine listening than divine reading when we take the time to do it. This is why we pray Lectio Divina — to become better listeners of the Lord, to hear more clearly what God is asking of us - opening ourselves to peace, gratitude, and living rooted in Christ.

The basic idea is to spend time listening deeply and intently to what God might have to say to you through Scripture—almost as if the sacred text were a much-cherished love letter from God. Lectio Divina is like a deep conversation with a best friend. It is not a study method. Background knowledge can be helpful but is not essential.  Our real goal is to meet our Lord as we read his Word and allow him to transform our lives to be more like him through the work of the Holy Spirit.

Join us as we meet online every TUESDAY evening, to dive deeper into the upcoming Sunday Mass readings. There is no commitment to join every week, just come whenever you can, spend some time praying through Scripture and sharing with each other.
