Learn To Pray In Color!

Praying in Color Weekend at Wellshire

Praying in Color Weekend at Wellshire

The Praying in Color Weekend is a wonderful way to begin the season of Lent.  As we emphasize prayer during Lent, plan to spend part of your weekend with Sybil MacBeth, author of Praying in Color.  Workshops will be offered on Saturday, February 21 and Sunday, February 22.  Praying in Color is for all ages and can be done anywhere, anytime.[clear]

Here are some reasons to Pray in Color:

    •  You want to pray but words escape you
    •  Sitting still and staying focused in prayer
      are a challenge
    •  Your body wants to be part of your prayer
    •  You want to just hang out with God but don’t know how
    •  Listening to God feels like an impossible task
    •  Your mind wanders and your body complains
    •  You want a visual, concrete way to pray
    •  You need a new way to pray

The Longest Night service 2014A candlelight service of healing and hope

For many, the Christmas season presents difficult feelings where there is grief, loss, health struggles, unemployment, and other life challenges.  You are invited to come and worship  on one of the longest nights of the calendar year.  This service of scripture and carols, under the light of candles, makes space for our brokenness, and calls us to hope in the midst of darkness. After this service of healing and wholeness, please join us for soup in the Fellowship Hall.[clear]
