Companions in Christ: The Way of Scripture is an 8-week small group study to help explore the nature of scripture and the ancient, time-tested practice of lectio divina. It is intended for those who are serious about adventuring into greater spiritual depths with God’s Word. It focuses on your daily experience of God and your growing capacity to respond to grace with gratitude, trust, love, and self-offering.

Based on the success of the 6-week Centering Prayer series led by Pastor Morris Brown and Robin Britt, the ongoing Welcome Wednesday Centering Prayer format will be modified: The group, led by Robin Britt, will meet each Wednesday for an hour and will read and discuss writings by Thomas Keating, Richard Rohr, Thomas Merton, Father William Meninger, Cynthia Bourgeault, and others. Open-ended small group discussions will seek to follow the leading of the Spirit. Each session will include a period of Centering Prayer. No previous experience with Centering Prayer is necessary.
