Opportunities for Growth & Formation in the way of Jesus:

Practicing Prayer (Contemplative Rhythms)

“Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me—watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.”  (Jesus, Matthew 11)

There is much to be concerned about in our culture and world.  Stress & anxiety is available for the picking up nearly everywhere you look.  Stories of crisis are plenty and the news often just piles on more reasons to feel scared, overwhelmed, angry and depressed. 

For the Christian, we know there is hope that is trustworthy and sustaining when we root our identity in Jesus.  

Even so, the culture water we swim in every day can form us more into its likeness than the likeness of Christ.  

FHPC would like to offer a space for quiet reflection, prayer, music, and reminders of the truth of Jesus’ kingdom breaking into our world today. 

If you would like a space to come to pray, sit with silence and practice listening to God with others, our sanctuary will be open for this specific purpose every Tuesday during the lunch hour, from 12:00-1 pm.  This is open to everyone – attendee, community member, doubting souls, students, parents, Christian or not – truly, everyone.

 

Sylvia hosts this space with journal supplies, candles, very quiet music to cover road noise and a short devo to use only if helpful in directing the reflection time.

Monthly Spiritual Practices – 

Forming our soul, mind, and body habits to reflect Jesus is a life-long practice that requires intention and various ways to train ourselves.  We will tackle one practice (discipline) each month and use the weekly check-ins for instruction, inspiration, and encouragement in spiritual friendships. 

 

January 2022's practice centers around actually living our daily life with God.  What does THAT look & feel like? What habits might we develop to help us be in communication with God throughout our day?  What is needed first in order to experience living one day at a time with Jesus?  Jump in and join us - we have a sweet time together!

Sylvia hosts this 30-minute practice space on Zoom every Thursday @ 12:30 pm.
