Dear friends,

This Advent Season at Lynn Valley United Church we will be embarking on the series “The Gift of Being Present.” Along with our Sunday morning worship we also would like to invite you to a Tuesday evening small group study for the 4 weeks of Advent beginning November 28th @ 6:30pm.  We have created a journey for you through Rev. Dr. Amy Oden’s book, Right Here, Right Now: The Practice of Christian Mindfulness as an accompaniment to this series.  As we focus on what it means to be truly “present” to God, to ourselves, to each other, and to the world, Dr. Oden’s book is a wonderful look at the history, theology, and practice of “Christian mindfulness.” Dr. Oden shows us how prayerful attentiveness (“mindfulness”) is a long part of our tradition, including the practices of Jesus. And she helps us see how being more attentive in our daily lives can have a personal and communal effect for the good. 
Each session will run from 6:30-8:00pm. Together we will watch a video and follow a study guide to enhance our conversation and experience as we become present with one another in this holiday season.
