Hebron Mennonite Church in Hagerstown will be offering a program of group spiritual direction starting in October and invite your participation. Through monthly small groups (4-6 persons per group), participants will gather to pray and share with one another where they have sensed the presence of God in their lives. The small group serves as a spiritual director/companion in listening and helping each person discern their spiritual path. These groups become sacred listening circles as they pray for one another. Leadership for these sessions will be provided by Ed Poling, retired Church of the Brethren pastor and trained spiritual director, and Rebecca Rothenhoeffer, United Methodist layperson, personal coach and trained group spiritual direction facilitator. Sessions will be held at the Hebron church on the first Thursday evening of each month starting in October and concluding in May. The first and last sessions will be a six-hour retreat for orientation and evaluation. Each participant will be asked to read Julian of Norwich: Wisdom in a Time of Pandemic–and Beyond. There is no fee for the eight-month program. However, a love offering will be taken to help underwrite the costs of the use of the building. The church is located at 13315 Highlane Street, Hagerstown. For more information and a brochure, contact Ed Poling at 301-766-9005 or firstname.lastname@example.org The program will begin on Thursday, October 6.
