Thursday evenings at First Presbyterian
We will meet for meditation on all Thursdays in March and April from 7:00 – 9:00 pm in the fellowship hall. (except Maundy Thursday, April 2) Our format for the first hour is two 20-minute periods of sitting in silence with a 10 minute walking meditation in between. For the second hour, we are doing a contemplative listening book reading. We are currently reading short sections from a book by Pema Chodron, The Pocket Pema Chodron.
Tuesday evenings at Hei’s house
Hei has opened his house to those who would like to join him for meditation from 6:00pm – 6:30pm on Tuesdays. It is one half hour of sitting meditation. Please call him at 899-4845 for directions and to let him know that you are coming so he can prepare a place for you.
March Retreat Day
Saturday, March 28, 2015
9:00 am -1:00 pm
In the Fellowship Hall
Poetry in all its beauty and truth has the potential to open our hearts to the mysteries of life and the wondrous workings of the Spirit in our lives. It can deepen our appreciation of the simple but profound truths that are found in our experience. We can soar with the poets who fling themselves into heart of things. Join us as we meditate together and recite and share poems of gratitude, prayer, longing, and the timeless search for wisdom.
Coffee, tea and refreshments will be provided. A freewill offering will be available.

Why do I storm heaven
that are already in my heart?
Every grace I need
to love folks well
has been given me
needing only my response
my willingness to let your grace
grow up in me.
Lead me to the grace-filled shores
of myself rooted in you
for it is there you have made your home.
Wash these wayward feet of mine
Water the seeds you have planted.
O Lead me to the beyond within.
