Spirituality Alive Series 2023 Called to the Wild Embrace, Session 1

Spirituality Alive Series

We live in Intimate Mystery, gifted with divine life. We shine with the graces of goodness, truth and beauty.

As beings of spirit, we are entrusted with the power and call to contribute in the Great Story of creation.

This is our spirituality alive, our joy and offering, our privilege and challenge, our total immersion in the Mystery of God.

In these two nights of Zoom gatherings, we will explore our call to the wild embrace. Please come to share your energy and insight in this spiritual reflection.

This series will be held via Zoom, on two Tuesdays

First Session: What Is Praying in Us?
Tuesday, October 4, 2022
Thomas Merton said that true encounter with Christ/God/Holy Mystery liberates something in us: “a power we did not know we had, a hope, a capacity for life, a resilience…a capacity to grow and change, a power of creative transformation.”
Prayer is our attunement, listening to the Divine Word within us, as it rises into our ruminations, mixes with our quandaries and explorations, and moves within us as grief and joy and energies for good. We learn to pay attention to the Divine Voice in our inner feelings and dialogs. In this evening together, let us deepen this prayerful awareness for our personal lives and current experiences in our world today. What is praying in us?

Via Zoom, Tuesday, October 4, 6:30pm—7:45pm Central.
