What Moves You? - Spiritual Reflection & Communal Meal

Wednesday, September 14, 5:30PM

Spiritual Reflection in THE 222’s Moss Sculpture Garden, with "potluck" dinner following.

(Bring a dish to share as able, but all are welcome to stay for dinner.)

What Moves You? is a contemplative experience of shared spiritual reflection upon a sacred text.

Join us the 2nd Wednesday of every month at 5:30 p.m. as leaders from different faith traditions within Sonoma County guide us based on the practice of Lectio Divina, or “Divine Reading.” We will hear a sacred text from the leader’s tradition in a contemplative manner, three times through. After each time, we will share responses and insights.
