“You can’t understand most important things from a distance,
you have to get close.”
Bryan Stevenson, Author, Just Mercy: A story of justice and redemption
It has been a pleasure to see many of you for our
sessions and we hope you will continue to join us for these dinner meetings as a way to grow in community while discussing practices for ministry development.
Throughout our diocese many parishes are exploring new ways of engaging or deepening their impact on the wider community. For these reasons, we have decided to focus this next Roundtable on the topic of
Neighborhood Prayer Walks
A prayer walk is not street evangelization. It is a contemplative practice of walking in pairs in prayerful silence mindfully attending to your surroundings and prompting of the Spirit to discover where Jesus may be calling the faith community to engage and enter the life of the wider community as a sign of hope by identifying an unmet or unrecognized need.
To help make it easier for more of you to join us, this Roundtable will be held in three locations.
