What is a session like?
Gather We've chosen to gather as a small community to share prayer, life and faith so we take time to introduce ourselves, find out what's going on in our lives and open with prayer.
Breaking Open Our Story After listening to a short reflection from the book, everyone has an opportunity to reflect on it in silence and then to share something of their own experience if they desire.
Breaking Open God's Story A scripture is read and everyone has an opportunity to reflect in silence and/or to share how that scripture is speaking to them today.
Invitation To Act The group or individual, upon reflection on the scriptures commit to a challenging but doable action for the coming week. It could be as simple as praying for one another.
You are invited!
