The Gatherings will meet Sundays after coffee hour.

 

Starting Sunday, September 10 11:30-12:15. 

 

 This year the goal is to provide an opportunity for members to talk about their faith and grow in their individual walk with God.  With this goal in mind, this is the proposed format for the upcoming year.  Stella and Janice is alternate leadership of The Gathering.  Stella will lead the Gathering at the Levittown Church on the first and third Sunday’s of each month.  Janice will led the Gathering at the Massapequa Church on the second and fourth Sundays of each month.

 

Janice will lead a special activity on the Fifth Sunday of October.  Activities for the remaining fifth Sundays of the year will be announced as they occur.

 

 STELLA

 

The sessions led by Stella will focus on centering prayer and meditation.  Some Yoga may be included in her sessions.

 

JANICE

 

Janice will lead a book study on: Life of the Beloved: Spiritual Living in a Secular World,by Henri J. M. Nouwen.  Books will be made available for purchase for all those who chose to participate.

 

 The following is the information on the back cover of the book:

From the Back Cover
“All I want to say to you is, ‘You are the Beloved, ‘ and all I hope is that you can hear these words as spoken to you with all the tenderness and force that love can hold. My only desire is to make these words reverberate in every corner of your being – ‘You are the Beloved.'” This personal witness to a God who calls us the Beloved is the fruit of a long friendship between journalist-writer Fred Bratman and Henri Nouwen. Henri is trying to respond to Fred’s concern to live a spiritual life in the midst of a very secular world. A remarkable aspect of this book is that while Henri writes to a personal friend, he in fact found a language that speaks clearly and convincingly to all who search for the Spirit of God in the world. Here is a ringing affirmation that everyone is loved by God and can enjoy “the life of the beloved”. It reveals the wonders of the spiritual journey and renews the fire of faith.

Those who are unspiritual do not receive the gifts of God’s Spirit, for they are foolishness to them, and they are unable to understand them because they are spiritually discerned.
