Called to Community – We are invited to live – to be in relationship with God, one another, and the world – as a reflection of the image of God: we are called to community.
We will explore what it means to be community in the image of God, through this week of guided prayer. We will reflect upon the struggles and challenges that we encounter as we engage in life as well as ponder how relationships grow as we deepen our connections with each other though our willingness to trust and be vulnerable. In the end we will celebrate in the knowledge that the God of love, in whose image we are created, encourages us and feeds our spirits through our interconnectedness.
Our Guided Prayer Retreat is focussed on enabling participants to attend a prayer “retreat”
while still maintaining their normal daily routine. Commitment to this Guided Prayer Retreat involves spending 30 minutes praying scripture at home, and then coming to HVUC (or online by digital device or telephone) for another 30 minutes with a “prayer companion” each day of the retreat week, from Monday to Friday.
The opening two-hour session will begin at 12:00pm on Sunday, Mar. 12 and will include instruction on praying scripture. The closing two-hour session will begin at 10:00am on Saturday, Mar. 18. This is an opportunity for you to grow with God through private personal prayer and sharing with a companion.
