Lenten Soul Friending: Seeking God Together as a Lenten Practice
April 1 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Mondays, March 18, 25, April 1 and 8 (6:30 – 8:30 p.m.; The Center Room)
“Seeking God together”—that is one way to define “soul friending.” Most famously in the Celtic tradition, the term used for soul friend is “anam cara.” Usually applied to one kindred spirit, the term can also describe a group when the group is gathered to listen deeply for God at work in our lives and to commit to seeing Christ in each other. Each group is a turn of the kaleidoscope and a microcosmic manifestation of the body of Christ. Soul friending helps us to be faithful to the guidance of the Spirit in our daily lives and to practice our consent to God’s presence and action in our own lives and the lives of those around us. In this series we will savor the conceptual background of soul friending, practice centering prayer, and enact a soul friending group. Centering prayer practice is not a prerequisite but rather a willingness to try centering prayer and to learn from the teaching surrounding it in which this soul friending teaching is couched.
