In this space, we experience the praying of the hours together. Historically these prayers were said every three hours over a twenty-four period, but some pray these twice or three times a day. In this space, we share our experiences as we each draw closer to God.

In this space, we create a yearly devotional rhythm based on historic days of the Christian year. Beyond Advent, Lent, and Ordinary Time, we will celebrate the season of Pentecost, as well as many saints days and feasts.

In this space, the goal is to read scripture through a devotional (not study) lens. How might we draw more intimately closer to God through reading his word? We will use various methods of devotional scripture study, such as Lectio Divina and Christian scripture meditation among several others.
