CONNECT GROUP

TIME FOR GOD

AFTER THE COMPLETION OF THE ALPHA COURSE, A CONNECT GROUP IS AN OPPORTUNITY TO GROW DEEPER IN LOVE, UNDERSTANDING, AND CONNECTION WITH GOD.

Many people today are thirsty for God and feel a desire for an intense, personal prayer life that is deep and ongoing. But they encounter obstacles that prevent them from following the path seriously, and especially from persevering on it. Time for God was written with these desires and difficulties in mind.

 

In Time for God, author Jacques Philippe mainly concentrates on mental prayer: prayer that consists of facing God in solitude and silence for a time in order to enter into intimate, loving communion with him. Practicing this kind of prayer regularly is considered by all spiritual masters to be an indispensable path that gives access to genuine Christian life—a path to knowing and loving God that empowers us to respond to his call to holiness addressed to each individual.

 

We would like to intentionally invite you into a 6 week series with Jacques Philippe’s book, “Time for God,” focusing on mental prayer.  Setting a strong foundation of prayer is important in the spiritual life.  This is why as a parish, we are placing special emphasis on continuing to form and become people of prayer.  Please fill out the below form with your interest
