Corpus Christi

This Sunday we give thanks for the Body of Christ. This can mean many things, but the major aspect is the mystery of the Eucharist and the blessing of the Divine made present through the sacrament. 

In my experience, the more deeply one looks into the mystery of the Eucharist, the more one is astonished by its sweetness and power. The service contains within itself much of the history of Christianity and, although understood differently by gnostic and orthodox christians, is treasured by all.

If you’ve never participated in the Eucharist as an adult or haven’t had a chance to really rest in the blessings of the Mass – the only way you’ll be able to make sense of what I’m saying is to come along and bring your refined, mature senses to bear on the Divine encounter in person.

See you on Sunday!

Readings for the week

The service this Sunday will be the “Johannite Gnostic Divine Liturgy”. The service alternates engagement and stillness, provoking a meditative attitude and the cultivation of deeper perceptions. The service features prayer and chant and the sharing of the Body and the Blood in the form of bread and wine. 

Conversation, hot drinks and snacks follow the service. Please stay and mingle.
