SPIRITUAL JOURNALING

Event details

  • Tuesday | July 14, 2020
  • 10:30 am - 11:30 am

New in 2020 is the formation of a spiritual journaling group to be led by Pastor Janice on Tuesday mornings at 10:30 in the Gathering Room, beginning January 7.

In Advent, journaling was added to the Wednesday prayer group sessions. Prayer Circle members requested that spiritual journaling continue in the new year. The change in day and time was set by the members so that no one had a conflict with the beginning or ending of our time together.

Typically, each gathering will begin with the reading of a psalm and prayer, which includes the names of everyone on our congregational prayer list. This is followed by short readings from scripture as well as a quote from a modern Christian writer. We have begun with thoughts from Dietrich Bonhoeffer. There are a few questions posed, and then everyone is free to write in their own journals or on paper that is provided. Everyone is invited (but no one is required) to share their thoughts when we have finished writing. The session closes with prayer.

No experience is needed in order to join the group. Nor do you need to come to every session. You are invited to come any Tuesday morning to listen, pray, and reflect on the topics of the day.
