Prayer Schedule


We sit together in silence. When someone brings a reading to share, particpants hear the reading twice, sit in silence, and then hear the reading again. At the end of the reading, they choose individually to leave in silence or to remain to discuss the reading. After discussion of the reading, particpants choose individually to leave or to stay to discuss the current book.

Study Following Prayer

We will decide in the summerr about whether we want to study together in the fall.

Particpants read the scheduled chapters ahead of time and come prepared to share words and phrases which caught their attention, which they especially appreciate, which they have questions about, which they disagree with, which they want to hear others' opinions about… The discussion is informal with no leader and all have opportunities to speak.
