Come and celebrate with Abbey Way the release of our first album "A Little Light." We will gather in the Gjerdingens' backyard (rain back up is at the Haacks) for an informal barbecue at 6 PM on Saturday, June 16. At 7 PM we will sing our way through the album's songs. Please bring your own meat to barbecue and a dish to share. RSVP if you can.
Join us for a discussion on Brene Brown's "Braving the Wilderness." Read the first two chapters ("Everywhere and Nowhere" and "The Quest for True Belonging") before our first meeting on Tuesday, June 12, 8:30-10 AM.
You may jump in anytime.
After the first discussion, our reading pace will be a chapter a week.
Our meeting dates are:
Tuesdays, June 19 & June 26; July 10, 17 & 24.
Please note we are not gathering the week of Fourth of July.
Come to the main entrance of Silverwood Park's main building. Bring a chair to sit on since we will begin our meeting outside before the coffee shop opens.
RSVP if you can. Otherwise feel free to just show up.
Inspired by our time at Work and Worship (AKA Ora et Labora), it is time (drum roll please) to resurrect the prayer book project! The idea is to do the book in sections that match each of the liturgical seasons. There will be Morning, Midday and Vespers prayer for each day of the week with a simple Compline prayer included that highlights each theme of the liturgical calendar.
The format will be like our camp prayer book which will make it accessible to use for everyone.
If you have a favorite prayer or psalm, send them to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will be collecting suggestions over the next few months. The goal would be to have the Advent Prayer Book done for the start of the season.
As soon as the book(s) are formatted, we will need some readers/editors to do the proofing. Let Pastor Jan know if you can help.
It is a big project but hopefully it can be done in bite size pieces! Here is to inspired prayer Abbey Way style!
Cost: $10/individual or $20/family
