This is an opportunity for fellowship and study with moms with young children. We’ll meet once a month, ordinarily on the fourth Thursday, at 7:00 p.m. in the Youth Building. Childcare will be available at the church with reservations. Each time we meet we’ll spend time sharing the joys and struggles of parenthood and exploring our faith.
Starting in February we’ll be using the book Praying in Color: Drawing a New Path to God to guide our time together. Written by Sybil MacBeth, this book introduces the active, visual prayer practice the author calls “praying in color.” Her method turns doodles into intercessory prayer. You don’t need to be an artist, a poet, or a Biblical scholar to pray in color. Participants will be given their own prayer journals to keep and use. Each month Camille LeBron Powell will introduce an aspect of this prayer practice. We’ll try it out together and you can do it on your own at home. It can even be used to learn scripture, observe the liturgical seasons, and process your days. In addition we’ll talk about ways you can share this method with your children to help them pray in color too. Mark your calendars for Thursdays in the new year: February 27, March 20, and April 24.
