Individual Pastoral Care

Here is a site that might be used for someone called to pro-bono pastoral care within the iklesia community. It would not be therapy or specifically licensed counseling. However, it would work like a counseling site in that a person could request an appointment and the pastoral care worker would interact them through a video chat, an audio chat, or a text chat.

Meditation Prayer Group

In this space, we will meditate on Scripture, on creation, on spiritual literature among other holy things. Our desire is to grow closer to God through the practice of meditation. For Christians, meditation is within the kataphatic tradition, focusing on filling your mind and heart with holy things. This is not to be confused with contemplation, where one sits before God in emptiness (the apophatic tradition).
