COMPANIONS ON THE JOURNEY
This group offers companionship for participants as they seek to more intentionally follow the leading of God’s Spirit in their lives. Members will meet monthly for a year to reflect on their lives and tell personal stories, looking back over the previous month to reflect on the Spirit’s presence and calling and setting a prayerful intention for the month ahead.
After an opening reading and a time of silence, members of the group will share conversation on the following questions as they learn to deepen their discernment process: Looking back over the previous month, when did you feel closest to God or experience God’s presence? When did you sense or hear the movement or calling of the Spirit? How did you respond to or resist that calling? What is your intention for the month ahead and what prayer might the group hold for you?
If you are interested in this opportunity but are not available at this time, please let Linda know; we may be able to offer additional groups. Facilitators: Linda Kowatch, Amy Ostwald & Chris Braudaway-Bauman
Date and Time: 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm the second Wednesday of each month
