Nine to Noon, December 5th on Zoom
Gary Guthrie, Spiritual Director, will lead us through meditations reflecting on our own birth story. Each of us is called to be born at a particular time and in a particular situation in order to fulfill God’s plan for the world. How does our birthstory influence our lives? How do we draw strength from Jesus’ birth story in our own life?
The morning will include Centering Prayer opportunities for contemplative sharing and silence for reflection. Prepare a quiet place within your home to enter into the experience.
Sponsored by Contemplative Outreach of Central Iowa. The link for the morning will be emailed to you on Friday Dec. 4. Register below.
