Service Description

Often when Ordinary Time and the summer roll around we can lose steam in our spiritual lives. We get wrapped up in work, vacations, daily life, parenting, paying bills, etc and forget that Jesus Himself chose the ordinary life. He could have bypassed all of what we might see as Ordinary but He did not. He chose it that He might learn of our daily trials, joys, work, struggles, community, family and more. "Outshining the Ordinary" is a series of three online 90 minute group spiritual direction sessions in June, July, and August. These prayerful listening groups will help members to be encouraged, remain attentive to their spirituality, gain momentum, and notice what God is doing in their lives and the lives of others. No training in spiritual direction is needed. Meritt will facilitate each group and help us to foster a holy listening environment: a safe place to share, be heard, and be encouraged without the presence of advice giving. Simply come as you are and be loved by others sisters journeying to the heart of Christ. Each of the three sessions will include: Lectio Divina, Worship, Prayer, and Individual and Group Sharing. WHO IS THE OUTSHINING THE ORDINARY COHORT FOR? - women who want to keep intention and not lose spiritual momentum over the summer - women who are overwhelmed by the long stretch of the ordinary and need a retreat like experience each month to help them through - women who have been afraid to try individual spiritual direction and would like to try direction in a group setting - women who would be encouraged by fellowship, prayer, and knowing they are not alone - those discerning a decision that would benefit from holy listening time with God and others (and much more!) WHAT IS THE COST? To cover my time and the work it will take to advance plan for each session a donation of $120-$180 for the 3 sessions is suggested. (Pay by month $40-$60 per month or all at once - your choice) Please DO NOT pay at the time of registration. If you are a current directee see monthly email for discounts. WHERE AND WHEN? All 3 sessions will occur on Zoom. The when will take into consideration the cohort members schedules and time zones and will be decided by registered members. It will however be regular, for example: it could be on the 3rd Saturday of each month at the same time. (This will help each cohort member plan) To Register or Ask Questions email merittpetrone@gmail.com
