In prayerful silence and with receptive hearts, our time together will reflect on:

Who are we as humans, as disciples, and as ordained ministers?
Who is Jesus as divine and human; who came to proclaim a reign of truth, justice and love?
How can we live our human condition as imitators of Jesus?
The responses to these questions may further enrich our lives, engage us in deeper contemplation and meaningful proclamation of the good news. The responses may also help us to more fully appreciate the diverse gifts and talents within the community we serve. Resources from scripture, tradition and our shared experience will guide us.

Please bring your Bible
