Faith Forum: Relational Prayer

Relational Prayer: Experiencing God’s Tremendous Love

What would happen if our prayer was as much about our experience as it was about our beliefs? An Ignatian scholar, Maureen Conroy suggests an answer: we would enter into a felt-sense of God's tremendous love. The forum on November 20th will look at Conroy's premise and a form of prayer that weaves Scripture, stories, and our contemporary experience. Dan Johnson, Executive Director at Christos Center for Spiritual Formation, will guide us through the material and some practical ways to try this relational style of prayer.

Generosity Lunch + Dinner

October 23 is our annual Generosity Lunch (following the 10:30am service) AND Generosity Dinner (following the 5:30pm service)

The meals are important - to hear stories of generosity from fellow parishioners and also to prayerfully consider pledging (or increase existing pledges) to St. Matthew's.

We ask that all pledge cards be submitted on the following Sunday, October 30 - Commitment Sunday.
