wednesdays at northern light

An invitation:

During lent, the season leading up to Easter, Peacemeal will be offering a time for spiritual conversation at Northern Light Espresso Bar (536 Spruce St. in Scranton.) This gathering is on Wednesday evenings (Feb. 13, 20, 27, Mar. 5, 12, 19) from 7:30 - 9:00 - and will happen in addition to our regular weekly gathering for worship and food. Feel free to come every week, or as many or as few times as you are able!

The theme is "Discovering Abundance" and our conversation time, though relaxed and informal, will be gently guided by a member of the leadership team. We will also spend a bit of time each week talking about Peacemeal - answering questions, listening for ideas, asking questions and sharing ideas that the leadership team is considering these days.

Everyone is welcome.

Tomorrow evening we'll be considering some thoughts and ideas from an article called "Getting to No" by Barbara Brown Taylor, a talented Episcopal preacher. The article, from the Christian Century, considers the spiritual discipline of saying no - how by cultivating the practices of resistance, discernment, ego-evacuation and compassion, we can make room in our lives "for a few carefully planted 'yeses' to grow." If you'd like to get a peek at it before tomorrow, you can find it online:

I'll bring printed copies for everyone tomorrow.
