Dear Asbury Church Members,

 

Dear Asbury Members and Friends,

MARCH SPIRITUAL GROWTH OPPORUNITIES

March will lead us through the season of Lent right up to Holy Week – Good Friday on April 2 and Easter on April 4. We are taking this opportunity to grow spiritually. We invite all to participate in:  The Examen – a Spiritual Growth Group –  7:00 to 8:00 p.m. on Thursdays in March led by Cathy Adlesic and Doug Cunningham –  via Zoom. 

    This is a five step process of prayerful review and reflection on the events, thoughts, feelings of one’s day in order to become aware of God’s presence and to discern God’s direction for us. The Examen is an opportunity to become aware of, attend to, understand, and to respond to God’s gift/graces as they show up in our everyday lives. This prayer taught by St. Ignatius helps us grow in faith, and move deeper in love with God.  

    The theme for this prayer practice during Lent:     

     We have come to know and to believe in the love God has for us.

     God is love, and those who abide in love, abide in God, and God in them. 1 John 16

 You may respond to this message with any questions you have or to let us know that you would like to participate.
