Sacred Reading: Invitations to Praying and Encountering the Divine

Wednesdays at 6:30PM, Weekly

FUMC Waynesville


*This class is currently FULL*

Sacred reading creates prayerful openings for listening to how God may be speaking in and through many kinds of literature to deepen personal awareness and meaning.  Using lectio divina  as the foundational practice, we will read selections from the Bible,  along with classic and contemporary spiritual writers and poets.  Periods of silence for reflection and written responses will be part of the process. Participants will be invited to share reactions to readings as they choose. Come with an open heart and a willingness to trust the Spirit’s guidance.   Please bring a pen or pencil, and, if desired, a journal.
