About the event

At  Quiet Fellowship, we welcome people of all faiths or no faith to  explore a deeper dimension of life in contemplative awareness. We are  especially open to authentic inquiry into aspects of spiritual living,  not shying away from existential issues and challenges of life's meaning  and purpose. A vibrant living faith is not afraid to doubt, to  interrogate, to question. It is even open to the possibility and reality  of not finding ready-made answers.

We aspire to build a community of grace and  wisdom that supports our personal journeys of faith, nurtures our personal practice of contemplation, and weaves our personal stories and  insights into a tapestry of collective awakening and transformation in  Christ.

Great Perfection:

At this session, we will explore how we delimit and misconstrue the  nature of heaven. Our ideas and conceptions of God and heaven often  have more to do with our conditioning and desires than with reality. We  project onto the future world beyond with content from our old baggage  of the past. Our religious cosmologies reflect this. Yet in the face of  mystery and the unknown, we are challenged and cajoled to seek the face  of ultimate reality we call "God" and "heaven." Scripture serves as  signposts to this reality. But to know and love insightfully the  profound truth beyond surface words invites us to enter through the  gateless gate of Christ and into the groundless ground of yes, Christ.  Only in Christ shall we see the great perfection that has always been,  is now, and ever shall be—world without end; world without world; end  without end. Do we dare to enter?

We will commence our session with a short prayer, moving seamlessly into guided meditation, followed by reflective reading of a bible passage accompanied by deep silent listening. We will then share reflections, emerging questions and issues, and conclude with prayers (everyone is welcome to offer a prayer) and benediction.
