Be Ye Doers of the Word and Not Hearers Only Start Doing

A Contemplative Advent on Wednesdays

Wednesdays December 4 & 11

Parkinson Room – 5:00 – 5:45 p.m.

contemplative prayer candleJesus said, “come to me all you who are weary and carrying heavy burdens, and I will give you rest.” (Matthew 11:28) ‘Weary and carrying heavy burdens’ might describe someone after a day of holiday shopping! Or if you’re just trying to get the rest of the season’s tasks accomplished. If this sounds familiar, we have help. As Jesus promised “learn from [him]…and you will find rest for your souls.” (Matt. 11:29) Come and join Mark Cooper and Ann Dieterle for a time of prayer, rest, and stress relief. In this time we will combine elements from spiritual direction, SSJE’s prayer life- including music and contemplative prayer, yoga, and Mind, Body, Stress Reduction. Through it we will connect with Christ within, so that when we go out into the busy world, we will remain centered in his love. *No need to bring a yoga mat or to wear special clothing.
