Contemplative Scripture Group: meets in the Daily Chapel on Mondays from 7:15-8:30 pm except on the 1st Monday of the month. The group of 5-12 people spends some time in silence & stillness, followed by deep listening to multiple readings of one of the upcoming Sunday Scripture texts. A different question prompts each period of listening and reflecting. Members share what each one hears and what action each is beckoned to take. The circle time is closed with prayer for each member as prompted by the Word that has been heard. Questions? Contact Laura Day.
