QUIET MORNINGS AT CHRIST MEMORIAL
A Quiet Morning at Christ Memorial is a mini-spiritual retreat. Our 3-hour silent retreats begin 9:00 AM, with a Taize-style prayer service, followed by an instruction and practice, and we end with a healthy lunch. There is time built into the morning for meditation, journaling or labyrinth walks.
Saturday, November 30, 2019 - My Soul Cries Out! Pastor Gae leads whis retreat as we begin the Season of Advent. Pastor Gae and Pastor Phyllis Meighen will lead our morning retreat as we begin Advent, a time to hope, dream, imagine and expect new beginnings within ourselves and our world. As our guide for this year’s Advent Retreat, we’ll be using the joy filled folk tune, The Canticle of the Turning. Begin this year’s Advent with time to meditate on the lyrics, pray, hear from scripture, and maybe create a poem, a song, a collage or a drawing of your own.
Pastor Gae is a certified Spiritual Director in the Jungian tradition and a priest at Christ Memorial. Pastor Phyllis is a UCC minister and Interim Pastor at Lihue Christian. She is also the Director of Resource for Christian Spirituality, an ecumenical outreach ministry at St. Michael & All Angels Episcopal Church. Please make a reservation by emailing Pastor Gae at email@example.com.
COMING IN 2020: (Dates TBA)
Introduction to Dream Work - Why were dreams taken so seriously in scripture? Perhaps because they had something important to say! We will learn why we should pay attention to our dreams, some techniques to remembering dreams, and then how to “work a dream”. We’ll also experience how a dream “group” works.
Creating My Spiritual Biography - A spiritual autobiography is a story of our personal journey with God. It recalls the memorable times and events of life, the joys and struggles, and connects them with God’s presence. It also looks at the space in between and reflects on any distractions, significant dreams or inner restlessness. We’ll finish with some time to write an intention for our future.
