Opportunities for Spiritual Practice

  Opportunities for Spiritual Practice  
Opportunities for Meditation, Sacred Movement, Prayer

We expect the offerings described below to expand over time.  These offerings are intended to provide opportunities for people to explore their spiritual selves in various ways.  We invite you to come and experience these practices, exploring which of them help to connect you to the Sacred.

Open Chapel Space, Tuesdays from 8:15 pm to 9:15 pm
On Tuesday evenings, after darkness has fallen, we offer our beautiful Chapel, with a labyrinth inlaid into the floor, as a space for contemplation and meditation in whatever way you desire.  You may stay for the whole hour, or come and go during that hour as you are moved to do so.  We invite you to light a candle as you enter the space.  You may sit, stand, walk the labyrinth, do whatever you wish to do in a way that honor's the space of others who may be present.  Recorded contemplative music is played for part of this time, and silence is held for part of this time.  The time is hosted by a facilitator.  We ask that you enter through the main doors of Angus Hall and use the side Chapel entrance (follow the signs!) rather than using the main Chapel entrance to minimize the noise as people enter and leave.

Healing Eucharist, Wednesdays at 12:10 pm
We offer a short (about 30 minutes), informal Eucharist in the Chapel on Wednesdays at 12:10 pm that includes prayers for healing for ourselves, others, and the world, as well as laying on of hands with prayer and anointing with oil.  

Morning Prayer, Fridays at 7:00 am
On Friday mornings, a service of Morning Prayer is offered in the Chapel.   This brief service (about 30 minutes) is shared by a small group that gathers to pray this traditional morning prayer offering of the Christian community.
