LOVERS OF JULIAN

   Tuesday, April 17           6:30 – 8:30 PM

I have recently found Julian of Norwich again, after many years of laying her aside. She has so much to tell us about God’s unwavering desire and attraction to us. Her experience of God as a tender mother speaks to us even today. Her writings are balm for the searching soul and hope for the drooping spirit. Can you come for this one night and witness her intense love for Jesus and let that same love overtake you too? Donation: $15, includes reading materials.

FINDING GOD IN CREATION
EARTH: THE WOMB OF GOD

   Friday, April 20           9:30 AM – 12:00 PM

Join us as we explore God’s love and nurturing revealed to us throughout Earth. We will pray with Scriptures and use the writings of St. Hildegard of Bingen and Thomas Merton to lead us to a closer relationship with God and a greater understanding of how we are interconnected with all of creation. Time will be spent both indoors and outdoors. We will use Water, Wind, Earth and Fire: The Christian Practice of Praying with the Elements by Christine Valters Paintner as a guide. Led by Jill Snyder. Donation: $30, includes book, or $15 without book.
