Lectio Divina – Fridays through September at 7:15 a.m. at Independence Park (left end)
Everyone is welcome to swing by, any Friday morning, to share in the practice of lectio divina – a meditative way of reading and reflecting on the scripture. The group has been meeting outside at the left end of Independence Park in Beverly to bask in the beauty and wonder of God’s creation – or come to the church if the weather is bad. All are always welcome – whether you’ve come many times or not tried lectio at all. The practice is inspired by the words of the prophet Isaiah: “listen and your soul shall live.”
Tuesday, September 1st – Theology on Tap
If you haven’t yet had the chance to stop by Theology on Tap, now’s your chance!

It’s a casual group, which meets the first Tuesday of every month – stop by any month you have time and sit around the table with your fellow theologians!
