Thursday evenings at First Presbyterian
We will meet for meditation on all Thursdays in March and April (except Maundy Thursday April 18) from 7:00 – 8:00 pm in the fellowship hall. Our format is two 20-minute periods of sitting in silence with a 10 minute walking meditation in between. Afterwards there is a brief time for announcements and sharing prayer concerns.
March Retreat Day
Saturday March 30, 2019
9:00 am – 1:00 pm
Our March retreat day is a yearly tradition with Monterey Meditation Group. Joseph Cotham gathers a rich collection of poems from diverse poets and offers them for us to share. We read each one out loud and listen with a contemplative ear, as if doing lectio divina. Then the wisdom from the group is shared and the poetry comes to life. The beauty of the poetry becomes a blessing for those who attend. Join us for a morning of meditation and poetry reading.
Coffee, tea and refreshments will be provided.
A freewill offering will be available.

May 25, 2019 MMG Retreat Day 9am – 1pm
i thank You God for most this amazing
day: for the leaping greenly spirits of trees
and a blue true dream of sky; and for everything
which is natural which is infinite which is yes
(I who have died am alive today,
and this is the sun’s birthday; this is the birth
day of life and of love and wings; and of the gay
great happening illimitably earth)
how should tasting, touching, hearing, seeing
breathing any – lifted from the no
of all nothing—human merely being
doubt unimaginable You?
(now the ears of my ears awake and
now the eyes of my eyes are opened)
