EMBODIED PRAYERS

Sundays in May, 10:35 a.m. - 10:50 a.m.

In May we will be exploring Embodied Prayers. This theme explores the use of our bodies and/or body-focused imagery in prayer to invoke various experiences of gratitude, compassion, love, and peace. Embodied prayers use things such as gentle movements, breathwork, guided imagery, sensory experiences, or tools such as a labyrinth. Lori Sweet and Elizabeth Terry will alternate leadership during the month to offer 4 different embodied prayer experiences.

Lori also will be leading a longer Embodied Prayer experience in the Adult Forum on May 20. She will teach the Universal Dance of Peace (The Seven Point Movement Meditation.) Attendees will have the option to join in or observe and hold space for the movement. Join us!

A NOTE ABOUT PER CAPITA:

Per capita funding is how Presbyterians mutually share the costs of coming together to discern the Spirit’s leading for the future.

It is how Presbyterians are trained to become better elders and ministers.

It is how Presbyterians discern God’s call in their lives.

It is how Presbyterians participate in the life of the wider church by serving on GA committees and commissions.

It is how Presbyterians participate in the life of the Church universal as we commit ourselves to work and live in fellowship with “all persons in every nation” (Book of Order, G-4.0101).

Market Square remits $25.58 for each active member. Please help us by paying your per capita this year. Please make checks payable to “Market Square Church” and note “per capita” on the memo line. Thank you! It really helps us to be able to stretch our budget!
