Lenten Lunches The Spiritualty of Imagining Prayers Wednesdays in March from 12-1pm in the Fellowship Center

     Lent is a wonderful time to work on one’s Spiritual Disciplines. Join us on Wednesdays in March (22 & 29) we will gather to learn and exercise our skill for Ignatian Prayer. St. Ignatius of Loyola (1491-1556) taught a form of reflective prayer that invites you to use your mind and imagination to engage in prayerful conversation with God and to recognize God’s presence in your daily life. This type of prayer invites the prayer giver to explore the depths of a gospel story. It asks us to consider our own reactions and feelings to a gospel story and to speak directly with God about what delights us and what disturbs us about the Good News we have read from the Bible.

     With Ignatius as our guide, our imagination becomes a way to help us know and love God.

Giving free rein to our imagination, we feel the heat of the summer sun, smell the dust as we walk along, and sense the desperation of the sick who come to Jesus for healing. And not only do we hear the words recorded in the Gospels, but we also imagine other things Jesus might have said or done. Imaginative prayer helps Jesus come alive to us. Come & enjoy lunch, explore the Gospel, and share your new discoveries to help others grow in faith!
