Sundays with Paul


Paul was the first person who tried to say who Jesus was and what he meant for life in this world. His efforts to that end shaped the Christian tradition. In this moment, when that tradition seems to say so many different things to so many different people, we thought it would be good to try to hear what Paul says. Join us on Zoom Sunday mornings at 7:30. No preparation necessary -- we'll read aloud and talk about what we hear.

Centering Space, in collaboration with the Virginia Quilt Museum, will meet on Wednesday, July 24 from 1:30 - 3:30 at Silver Lake Mill in Dayton to view the traveling Sacred Threads Exhibit. This exhibit "explores themes of joy, inspiration, spirituality, healing, grief and peace/brotherhood."  We invite you to join us as we visit the museum's new space, hear from local quilter Paula Caldwell, and tour the exhibit. We will use the practice of visio divina, a form of prayer using visual elements to help set our minds on prayer, allowing God to speak into our hearts through the quilts. Cost for this event is $8.00 general admission or $7.00 for people over 65 and is payable at the door. Register for this event here For more information, contact Teresa Harris or the church office.
