Details +

Sacred Journeys is made up of people of diverse ages, interests, backgrounds, and lifestyles who want to deepen their spiritual life. While we occasionally will do a study, usually we gather in a circle to engage in spiritual practices that enrich our inner life. We sing meditative and praise songs, including those from Taize and The Faith We Sing. We sit quietly while led in a guided meditation focusing on breathing and often also on a passage of scripture. We listen in silence for the voice of God. And we share what is on our hearts. We close with a prayer circle in which we lift up the concerns of ourselves and others to God in prayer. We welcome all to this circle!
