The Program: 

This offering of Attrait will focus on a form of personal devotions that begins with the longings of each person -- for harmony and uniqueness, for healing and forgiveness, for meaning and a sense of direction. These states-of-being are an experience of God's prayer within us. How might we prepare ourselves to be receptive? What forms of prayer can help us focus these longings?

Fear not. It's "heavy" stuff that we will approach with a respectful, light touch. 

Elements of the Program:

  1. Morning Prayer
  2. A way of thinking about it – a model, theory
  3. Experiential learning – reflection and learning from your experience
  4. A spiritual practice or two to use
  5. How you see yourself making use of what you’ve learned
  6. A short time on how this applies to a parish church
  7. A booklet, book, or packet to take away
