Lenten Soup Supper Studies

Lenten-Bible-studies-2013

On Thursday evenings in March, we are pleased to be offering the Lenten Soup Supper study and discussion series again.  We will be reading and discussing the scriptures for the upcoming Sundays. This is a very popular event, a warm, welcoming time of fellowship in the chilly winter months.

Time:  5:30-6:15, but this is a very casual, "walk-in" event, so come

- whatever time you can,

- to whichever sessions you can,

and you will be warmly (we all need that!) welcomed.

A One-Minute Spiritual Exercise

branch-and-the-blue-blue-sk"Sit as comfortably as you can, letting your legs and arms relax. Place one hand on your abdomen...breathe slowly, your hand rising and falling, for one minute. ...Attempt to focus on the presence of God as you relax.  Survey your surroundings as you breathe, and know that Christ is present with you in this very place; you do not need to look anywhere else to find him."

- excerpt from Right Here, Right Now:  Spiritual Exercises for Busy Christians, by Dr. Carstens and Rev. Mahedy"

The exercise above is the first one-minute exercise described in this book, and it is my favorite.  When I do this, I feel great awe at the fact that God is right there! And hand-in hand with that comes tremendous peace, knowing that I can lean on God if I need to.  No matter how busy we are, we can spare 1 minute.  This is a very good book, and it's in our church library.  I hope you'll try this exercise, and may the peace of God be with you.
