"Womens' Art Show for Advent"

Welcome all artists! Even though the Womens' Retreat this Fall has been postponed, we are still holding the "Womens' Art Show for Advent" and asking that you share your many talents to express the feeling and idea of Advent. We’re sure that Advent this year will hold a special meaning for all of us. Kathy Fritschi will be displaying our creations on October 1, 2020, in the Parish Hall.

All mediums are welcome, paper, canvas, clay, handwork, carving, sculpting, photography, poetry….. any of the many ways we express ourselves. Kathy is doing a portrait of herself and her favorite things, Sylvia and I are doing a fabric art piece, and Betsy may write a song.

Please let Kathy know how you want to participate. Contact her at (530) 651-4056 or t.fritschi@comcast.net.

We hold you all in prayer, Leslyn

Visio Divina Eastertide

“Without attention, the human sense of wonder and the holy will stir occasionally, but to become a steady flame it must be tended.” Huston Smith

17th century – nun feeding cats at the cloister of Santa Chiara in Naples

You may want to begin your time in prayer with a scripture reading. If so, this link will connect you to an online Daily Office. https://dailyoffice.wordpress.com. Before you begin be sure you have the image ready to look at in some way; on your computer, phone, or perhaps printed out ahead of time. You can click on the image to open a larger version and also Click Here to open a pdf of the Vision Divina steps in case you would like to print it out as well. To see the earlier Meditation Day images, visit Rev. Deb's blog here.

Vision Divina:

1. Close your eyes, breathe, clear your mind, and ask God to enter into this time of prayer with you and to speak to you through the image. 

2. Open your eyes and look at the image. Let your eyes pause and focus on the part of the image that you are first drawn to. Gaze upon just that part of the image for a minute or two. Is there an emotion or word that speaks to you? Are there questions that come to mind? Then close your eyes, still seeing that part of the image in your mind. 

3. Open your eyes and now look upon the whole image. Is there an emotion or word that speaks to you? Are there questions that come to mind? 

4. Close your eyes again and rest in God as long as you need to.

5. Open your eyes. While looking upon the image, respond to God. Pray through the words, images, emotions, questions, and thoughts that are now on your heart. Continue to look upon the image as you pray.

6. Close your eyes and rest your eyes briefly.

7. Open your eyes and gaze again upon the image as you finish your prayer time. Reflect upon this prayer experience. Consider how you’ll take this into your life. You may choose to journal about your experience.

Mark 16:1-8 (NRSV)  When the sabbath was over, Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James, and Salome bought spices, so that they might go and anoint Jesus. And very early on the first day of the week, when the sun had risen, they went to the tomb. They had been saying to one another, “Who will roll away the stone for us from the entrance to the tomb?” When they looked up, they saw that the stone, which was very large, had already been rolled back. As they entered the tomb, they saw a young man, dressed in a white robe, sitting on the right side; and they were alarmed. But he said to them, “Do not be alarmed; you are looking for Jesus of Nazareth, who was crucified. He has been raised; he is not here. Look, there is the place they laid him. But go, tell his disciples and Peter that he is going ahead of you to Galilee; there you will see him, just as he told you.” So they went out and fled from the tomb, for terror and amazement had seized them; and they said nothing to anyone, for they were afraid.
