 “We need to look at Jesus until we can look out at the world with his kind of eyes.  The world no longer trusts Christians who ‘love Jesus’ but do not seem to love anything else.

 In Jesus Christ, God’s own broad, deep, and all-inclusive world-view is made available to us.” 
Richard Rohr, The Universal Christ (p. 32).

Hope-filled anticipation for the month ahead…

First Tuesdays.

On First Tuesdays we will come together for a time of guided contemplative prayer,
opening our hearts to God,
looking back over the preceding month with gratitude, and
setting our intentions for the month to come.

We meet at 7:30 a.m., at the Short North Church, for 20 minutes of silent, contemplative prayer. We will conclude by 8:00 a.m. You are welcome to linger in silence as you as you are led.

Beginning Tuesday, September 3, at 7:30 a.m., at:
Short North Church

Retreat.

Rest.

Silent.

Open to God.

Urban Sabbath.

Begin the fall with a morning retreat, an oasis in the midst of your frantic schedule and in the middle of your everyday world.
Begin the fall with a Sabbath,
Urban Sabbath.

 September 14, 9:00 to 11:30 a.m., will be the first of four Urban Sabbath offerings this year.  Gather at the Short North Church at 8:45 a.m. for a series of contemplative prayer practices.

We begin with gentle, slow flow yoga, to immerse ourselves in the sacred connection of heart, body, mind.

We continue with a guided meditation, to immerse ourselves in the Love of God.

We conclude with a walking meditation to Goodale Park, to immerse ourselves in God’s presence in the world all around us.
