Encounter.The Call: Motions of the Soul

  • Majors' house 1968 McCauslen Mnr. Steubenville, OH USA (map)

St. Ignatius Loyola called discernment of the spirits "motions of the soul".

How the imagination, emotions, thoughts. desires, passions influence our decision making? Is it God or the devil? Or is it simply me?

Motions of the Soul

Sometimes people think they know each other pretty well, but spiritual friendships start, evolve and grow only when we become intentional about them. Since a desire to enter into deeper relationships based on love and trust for the purpose of building each other up and encouragement are being recently expressed by few of the parents, starting this Friday, we will initiate Encounter.Groups for Parents and any adults that would like to join. When the teens and students go to their small groups, we will gather and follow a similar pattern in 35-40 min sessions:
  • Sharing (listening to each other's experiences, stories )
  • Discussion (intellectual and spiritual insight; keeping with the topic)
  • Lectio Divina (prayerful reading, meditating, sharing and contemplating   of the Scriptures)
  • Prayer for each other or others not present
If we do not like this pattern, we will change it, as we go. It is all up to the direction of the Lord, our needs and desires.
Encounter.Groups meet after initial prayer and short (yeah, right) talk/teaching. We usually have longer time of worship and prayer after the groups meetings. 
Moms with nursing babies are welcome. If we will have parents interested in attending with kids under twelve that require supervision, we will consider possible solutions.  
There is no obligation to attend, while you wait for your teen, only invitation. 

We don't have Twitter, but we have a web site
