Wednesday Connections:  Prayer around the Cross and Godly Play, January 22

Wednesday Connections this month will be on Wednesday, January 22. We will share dinner together from 5:30 – 6:30pm. At 6:30, children will be invited to go to Godly Play, and youth and adults will share in a contemplative worship service of prayer around the cross. Come and be nurtured in body, mind and spirit and share in Christian community.




Wednesday Connections

Wednesday Connections has taken many shapes in 2018 and 2019.   In September, we launched our first experience of “Dinner Church.”  Dinner Church is inspired by an innovation of St. Lydia’s Church in Brooklyn, New York, and picked up by the Luther Seminary Community.  Based on the worship in the Early Church, where in the second and third centuries, Christians gathered for sacred meals they called the Eucharist (a Greek word that means “thanksgiving”). The meals shared by these early Christians were the great-great...great-great grandparent of our modern Eucharist, also called Communion or the Lord’s Supper.

During Lent we explored our various spiritual practices to help us deepen our relationship with our God and our world and in Advent, we meet in member house homes throughout the metro to share in a special advent weekly service.
