Wednesday Morning Prayer
8:30am – 9:00am
 
Join us for a time of guided reflection based on the upcoming Sundays Scripture
 
Rest in your experience with the reading, the sunlight, the trees, the sky, the sights
and the sounds of life with a grateful heart.
Do not worry if your mind begins to wander.
Greet your thoughts and then let them go and return your attention to the beauty around you.

Be gentle with yourself.

All things are born of God and connected in a web of love.
Let us pray for the life of the world.

 

This morning we invite you to observe your surroundings;

to dwell in the here and now.

We will open and close our time together with
the Wednesday morning prayers from John Philip Newell’s book “Praying with the Earth”

Our meditation will be a reading from St. Francis of Assisi, “Instructions to the birds”.
