LISTENING GROUP meets Wednesday, April 21, at 10–11 a.m., via Zoom. This is a time of prayerful listening and reflecting in community. We explore poems, essays, meaningful quotations, psalms, and readings from other faith traditions and world religions as possible spiritual resources. The reading for April is Eagle Poem by Joy Harjo. All are welcome! No experience necessary! Please see the weekly e-notice for the Zoom link (or contact office@shepherdstownpresbyterian.org).
 
A GATHERING SPACE FOR PRAYER. We are a community of prayer, centering on the Love and Grace of God. Please be welcomed to this time of offering our prayers for ourselves and others, the community, country and the world. “Where two or more are gathered in my name, I am with you” is our reminder and guide to share this time together. Bring any of your own joys and concerns, but this is not required. Come as you are—fully human and deeply loved. Planning to hold this space on the 2nd and 4th Fridays each month. Please see the weekly e-notice for the Zoom link (or contact office@shepherdstownpresbyterian.org). Next: April 23.
 
SUNDAY SEMINAR. Please join us at 9:30 a.m. April 18 for continued discussion of systemic racism, as well as an update on the work of our Social Justice committee. Please see the weekly e-notice for the Zoom link (or contact office@shepherdstownpresbyterian.org).
