Dinner discussions serve both a social and educational purpose. They’re an informal time to meet and get to know each other, but also to discuss what we’re reading, ask questions, and share ideas and experiences. We’ll be holding these somewhere public (the venue may roam a little) on the second Sunday of the month.

Eucharist is a core part of Johannite spiritual life. Liturgy brings us into the shared presence of the divine. This is a traditional service known by many names in different churches – Mass, Holy Communion, The Lord’s Supper, The Divine Liturgy – but we all share a common practice of bread and wine, though our understanding may be different.
Introduction to contemplative prayer is a one-day workshop about meditation – or contemplative prayer as well call it. How is it prayer? How do you do it? What does it? Why should you do it? Get your questions answered and get started with a modern form of an ancient practice that goes beyond mindfulness.
