Small Group Series – Summer Interlude

Wednesdays, August 9, 16, 23 at 7 pm

Join Lee-Ann on a journey with the Psalms. We’ll spend some time in quiet reflection with contemporary versions of these ancient prayers, and share, as we are comfortable, with how they speak to us today. Bring a journal for your reflections and colorful pencils or markers if you’re inclined to be creative.
The small group process will use the Touchstones from Parker Palmer’s Circle of Trust and include Psalms from Nan C. Merrills collection, Psalms for Praying – An Invitation to Wholeness. Please let Lee-Ann know if you will be joining the group –  lee-ann@northleaunited.ca
