ENCOUNTER: Be Still and Know...

Sunday: May 20 at 6:30 PM

With the constant babble in the world, how do you hear God? How do you move from a space of perpetual busyness to a place where you sit in the presence of God? How do you
say "No" to external voices threatening to tear community apart?

When we sit in silence and listen, we open our hearts to the wonder of God's love for us, and in that silence, we are called to open our hearts to others. We hear God the
encourager, God the lover, in the silence. When we sit in silence, we can let go of those things that keep us separate from others. It is then that we can lean in to a space where
we share our journeys, be the beloved, be ourselves, and it is there that we build community.

Join us in the parish hall on Sunday, May 20 from 6:30 - 8:00 PM to

  • SIT in silence.
  • LISTEN with your heart.
  • SHARE with compassion.

As we build community, one heart at a time.

Please let Liz Howington know if you plan to attend.

Prayer Practice Class

Second Wednesdays each month

"The desire to pray is God's gift to us. As we ponder the mystery of God, who talks to and listens to us, the believer realizes an inborn agility to take the leap of faith required to be in communion with God." from Prayer Changes Me

Prayer has many forms as unique to us as we are to our Creator. The Daughters of the King are sponsoring a Prayer Practice in the Grace Center Conference Room at 10:30 AM on the second Wednesday of each month. Our Sister in Christ, Elizabeth Mavis, will be leading us in this prayer practice. We welcome all women to come and learn with us. "...Good is the Lord to one who waits for Him, to the soul who seeks Him." Lamentations 3:22-25

Summer School & Fall Workshops

June 24, July 22, August 19, September 15, October 13, November 3

This summer, we will begin a more focused study of our key theme: elements of a contemplative reformation. We will reflect on this within the context of Grace Episcopal Church and the Episcopal Diocese of Atlanta–and the broader community of which we are a part. There are elements of theological reflection as well as practice that are essential as we lean more into this deeper, contemplative tradition within our parishes and communities. To that end, we are offering these spaces for conversation, study, and practice. Learn more on Fr. Stuart's blog.
