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.
Redeeming Grace, Transforming Light:
In 2023, we will explore the grace and light of the triune God in Jesus—with intimations of the inter-penetrating, inter-pervasive nature of divine being. We approach this by allowing our minds to settle into this moment, bright and clear. From this ground, we are ready to have open contact with each moment of God's grace calling us unto Himself. Ephesians 2:8-10 speaks of our salvation in Christ by grace alone and not by our works, we having been prepared before-hand by God to walk in the goodness that evidences our salvation. In John 8:12, Jesus proclaims himself as the "light of the world' such that whoever follows Him will have "the light of life." Other passages in Bible evince the same profound wisdom of God's grace and light, which we will contemplative slowly over time. Contemplating God's truths boggles the mind and dissolves our preconceived notions of how things are. Quietly, we are led by words of scripture into the saving and transforming mystery of God's life, light, and love embodied in Jesus Christ.
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.
