Wednesday Morning Group
The Wednesday Morning Holy Conversation Group meets weekly at 10 A.M. to pray, worship, study and really, really enjoy friendship. The group begins with prayer concerns, which become intercessions for Noonday prayers from the Book of Common Prayer. Study book discussion follows, and then those whose schedules permit enjoy lunch together at a restaurant.
The current book study is Walk in Love, Episcopal Beliefs and Practices by Scott Gunn and Melody Wilson Sholb. The next book study is the just-published Tragically Transformed by Stark County’s own Kendra Wriston. It is her story of how God turned unimaginable pain into purpose. Attendance is informal. Join in any Wednesday that you can.
