We strengthen that love and unity by reaching out and reaching in, by living and learning Jesus’ message in the world, and by embracing our oneness with all of God’s creatures and creation.
At St. David’s we provide various programs and groups specifically designed to encourage questioning and seek spiritual growth.
Contemplative prayer is an important part of the Christian’s prayer life. One method of learning more about this is through Centering Prayer. St. David’s and other folks participate in a weekly meeting where silent prayer is experienced, along with discussion pertaining to a relevant topic, video series, or book. Reading material has included writings from Thomas Merton, Cynthia Bourgeault, Jim Marion, Thomas Keating and Richard Rohr.
Centering Prayer meets at St. David’s in the Library on Tuesday mornings from 9:30AM to 11:00AM.
If you would like to be part of the group, please contact Suzanne Robinson at 207-967-9959 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. She is delighted to give you further information.
Wednesday Healing Eucharist and Bible Discussion Group
On Wednesday mornings at 9am a Healing Service with Eucharist takes place in the chapel after which the group convenes in the Library for a discussion of the readings appointed for that coming Sunday.
Education for Ministry
Education for Ministry, or EFM, is a four-year course offered through the School of the South, in Sewanee, TN. Susan Andrews recently completed this course and is now mentoring a class with participants from St. David’s and other area churches.
If you are interested in learning more about EfM, contact the church office at 207-985-3073 and we will put you in touch with Sue.
