Prayer of Examen:

This past Sunday Marv spoke about the practice of, with Christ, examining our lives (behaviors, thoughts, etc.).  The Prayer of Examen is an old prayer practice whose structure was introduced to Christian tradition by St. Ignatius of Loyoal.  The link below connects to a page describing the simple practice for those of you who are interested.

http://www.ignatianspirituality.com/ignatian-prayer/the-examen/how-can-i-pray

Another resource is put out by a Jesuit community in England.  “Pray as you go” offers 12(ish) minute daily audio meditations (yes there is an app) that includes both music and scripture.  There is also a “Prayer of Examen” offered if you are interested in being guided through the prayer.

Build, craft, or collect items for the elementary Godly Play class:

We are preparing for another year of object lessons in the Godly Play classroom.  In order to reduce expenses we are looking for people who would be willing to create or donate small objects for the boxes: woodworkers, sculptors, painters (of small signs), sewers (of small cloaks).  Thanks for everyone who responded to the announcement Sunday!  Here’s a sample of what’s left: a shofar (ram’s horn), a wire “whirlwind” sculpture, a “story-teller” sculpture, small wooden figures of lions, a wolf and a fishing hook (we have patterns).  The most “pressing” need is the creation of a small wooden bookshelf, approx. 18″ x 12″ – needed on September 13.  Contact Sarah Sackett.

Where did the office go? We have moved our office upstairs to the yellow/ prayer room where we have space to welcome anyone who stops by, fresh coffee, and scenic views.  The former church office is now a work/ copier room for those who need a large desk to write on or to use the computer and print items for COTS or Legacy.  You will still find office supplies you need in the work room.  Enjoy the space!   – Cora and Luke
