Mondays with the Modern Mystics

This class will no longer meet in person, because of the public health emergency. But we will still meet. Join us via videoconference or phone using the button below.

On the Mondays of Lent you are invited to journey into the question: how do we know God? Through prayer, conversation, study, and fellowship we will spend time with voices from the past 100 years that have held (re)define the Christian tradition.

We will start with a simple service of Contemplative Evening Prayer at 6:00pm.

After a check in, a member of the clergy will present on a “Modern Mystic,” asking the question: “How does this person invite us to know God?”
