Benedictine Spirituality Round Table

Benedictine Spirituality Round Table

Weekly on Wednesday at 6:00pm until Thu, Oct 7 2021

As Episcopalians who are the body of faith communities that make up ECMN, we share the longing to gather, not just at our own sacred Eucharist tables, but with each other. As such, Saint Mark's Cathedral welcomes you to be a part of our Round Table Gatherings in September.

In September, we dive into Benedictine Spirituality, with its focus on the search for God through life in community. What does it mean  to live our lives based on the Gospel of Jesus Christ? To see and be fully seen in a community where grace and humility are palpable, and brokenness is welcomed faithfully? How can a life of obedience, conversion, and stability help us live more mindfully and purposefully each and every day? 

September 15th: An Introduction to Benedictine Spirituality with Bishop Loya
We are deeply honored to have Bishop Loya join us and lead the introduction to Benedictine Hospitality. His vision is that we live the reality that in Jesus, we are one family, one body. The more deeply we are connected with one another, the more faithful and vibrant our witness will be to the way of love in the world. His journey with Benedictine Hospitality will both inspire us and invite us to join that journey. 

September 22nd: Benedictine Spirituality in Community with Rev. Jan Bros
Benedictine spirituality at its core is communal. Rev. Jan Bros will introduce one communal, lived expression of Benedictine spirituality. As founder and pastor of Abbey Way Church for the last fifteen years, she has helped to apply the wisdom of the Rule of Saint Benedict to a non-monastic setting. Through stories of the community, you will get a glimpse of some of the ways Abbey Way has endeavored to live the principles and practices of Benedictine spirituality to form a Christ-centered community of faith.

September 29th: Benedictine Spirituality in the Individual with Dr. Christine Luna Munger, Director of The Episcopal House of Prayer
While Benedict’s ladder of humility points to external, outward behaviors, it actually serves as an invitation to do deep interior work. During our session, Christine will take a look at Benedict’s teaching on humility as a guide for doing the hard work of interior transformation, which is situated in the larger framework of an orderly, stable communal life that supports the individual person.
