Wednesday nights 8pm via the standard Zoom link
Spirituality is a personal thing. Even if we ascribe to a common creed or practice, we each use different words to express our experience and we each come at faith and Spirit from a different personal history. On Wednesday nights at St. Augustine's we are learning to value the aboriginal/recovery sharing circle as a tool to help one another on our journey.
Anyone may drop in at any time to this sharing circle. We sometimes follow a book, but design the evenings in such a way that someone can join in even if they have not done that reading. Please come on time if you can.
In circle we share one at a time, if we are not speaking, we listen with openness to the others. We choose to speak in the moment, avoiding any planning or thinking about what we might say next. This is an act of trust and vulnerability in community.
Each week we use a 'prompt' from a book, video, or individual to open the circle to sharing on that topic.
There is a .pdf document attached that outlines the basic format (container) that we follow.
If you wish to join us, we do sometimes send out the prompt via email by 5pm on Wednesdays so people can have the text in front of them. If you would like to join the circle some night, please let Rev. Jonathan know before then, so you can be included in the email. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
We begin at 8pm and end as close to 9:30pm as we can.
