In this Evensong series, participants will explore individual life journeys through sharing thoughts, experiences, doubts and current beliefs. We will meet on Tuesdays from 6:30 to 8:30 PM in Becker Chapel.
Each week, we will follow an order of service, with the central event being a sharing time. We will be listening attentively and without interruption to one another.
Here is our plan:
September 11 Gathering One Beginning Together: Show and Tell
September 18 Gathering Two Religious and Spiritual Experience
September 25 Gathering Three The Divine: What Do I Really Want?
October 2 Gathering Four Being Human: What Limits Do I Encounter?
October 9 Gathering Five The Messiah, the Christ, the Buddha, the Divine
Made Manifest: What is Possible? What Keeps Me
October 16 Gathering Six The Community: What is Possible Together?
October 23 Gathering Seven Endings: How Do I Live with Loss & Death?
October 30 Gathering Eight Ministry: What Is My Ministry? What Am I Called to do in the World?
Evensong is a good way to explore personal beliefs and possibilities and a great way to get to know a group of people.
There is no fee for Evensong. To register, please call the church office at 815-895-2706.
For the first session, we would like to have a Show and Tell as part of the gathering. Please bring an object, photo or memento to speak of to the rest of us.
We look forward to beginning. If you have any questions, please give one of us a call.
