Silent Retreat Day
Our May retreat day is our longer format that allows us time to deepen our silence. The rhythm of our day will include an hour and a half silent meditation in the morning, watching a talk by Pema Chodron from her DVD titled “Fully Alive: Living Beautifully with Uncertainty and Change”, a lunch break, and conclude with a tea ceremony and another hour and a half time of silent meditation. Come join us as we learn and practice how to deepen our silence to bring more love and peace into the world. Please bring a sack lunch. Coffee, tea and refreshments will be provided. A freewill offering will be available.

July 28, 2018 MMG Retreat Day — Poetry
9am – 1pm Fellowship Hall
You have given me eyes to see with, O God,
and ears to hear life’s sounds and sorrows
and yet my seeing and hearing
like my tasting and touching
are wounded and weakened by failures.
As rest can heal the sores of a body
and sleep restores its strength
so may your angels of grace visit me in the night
that the senses of my soul may be born afresh.
Visit my dreams with messengers of grace, O God,
that the senses of my soul may be born again
J. Philip Newell
