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.
January Retreat Day

The Master and His Emissary:
The Divided Brain and the Making of the
Our January retreat day will be a tribute to Joe Neary. Joe was a dear member of our meditation group and was to lead our Saturday workshop on the topic, The Neuroscience of a Calm Mind. With his recent passing on January 11, we would like to honor him with two of his passions. A time of sitting together in meditation, and a video focused on neuroscience. It came to our attention that he was interested in the work of Iain McGilchrist, the author of the book The Master and His Emissary: The Divided Brain and the Making of the Western World. We will watch a short video on McGilchrist’s book and have a time of discussion and sharing afterwards.
Coffee, tea and refreshments will be provided. A freewill offering will be available.

March 28, 2020 MMG Retreat Day – Inspirational Poetry
…We cannot do everything, and there is a sense of liberation in realizing that. This enables us to do something, and to do it very well. It may be incomplete, but it is a beginning, a step along the way, an opportunity for the Lord’s grace to enter and do the rest. We may never see the end results, but that is the difference between the master builder and the worker. We are workers, not master builders; ministers, not messiahs. We are prophets of a future not our own.
– Oscar Romero
