Self Guided Advent Retreat

Nov 5 Adult Faith Formation

Mark your calendars for a 6 week prayer journey with Lectio Divina; praying with Scripture. Our Adult Faith Formation groups will meet weekly to view videos, engage in discussion, and enjoy fellowship. If you are not able to join all/any of the sessions, you can participate through Formed.org. The participant guide will navigate you through the retreat.

Dr. Tim Gray (President of the Augustine Institute) masterfullyuses the discipline of Lectio Divina to show us how to make prayeran effective effort of love and intimacy. In six video sessions (foundon Formed.org), Prayer: Finding Intimacy with God captures thesecret to opening our hearts and minds to Scripture as the meansto hear from God and then respond in conversation, basking in hispresence and resolving to live in and through his love.

Prayer: Finding Intimacy With God includes:

  • The Lectio Divina approach of Reading, Reflecting, Responding, and Contemplating
  • Penetrating questions and insights for the six video sessions
  • Additional resources for a fuller understanding and application
  • Daily reflections to deepen the meaning of prayer in your life
  • Space for personal journaling

Meetings will be on Mondays from Nov 5 - Dec 10 in the mornings (9:15-11:00am) and evenings (6:30-8:00pm). Look to future bulletin updates for additional session details or go on Formed.org for more information.
