In this space, we look to experience God through various kinds of homilies and sermons from around the world. The focus will be on going deeper with God experientially, as opposed to study.

In this space, each person will have an opportunity to experience God through communion. Those who are ok with receiving communion online may do so, and others who desire to experience communion through their own tradition in a face to face context may choose to go that route. Either way, there will be opportunities to experience communion (Eucharist, Lord's Supper) in a number of ways and to share our experience together.

In this space, we experience the worship of God through liturgy. We will experience different liturgical traditions, going back to the early church liturgies all the way through 21st century liturgies. The focus in this particular is to worship and journal on your experience through the group blog.

In this space, we will practice fasting from a number of perspectives -- Orthodox, Catholic, Protestant, Pentecostal, and Emerging perspectives, both from West and East, and the Global North and South. The focus on the group is experiencing fasting together. We will have a group journal where we share our experiences of God and self through fasting. The group will get going when we have a certain number of members.

Experiencing worship through icons and the visual arts has a long history and yet still inspires and leads us to God today. In this group, we will sit experience a different icon every week. For now, this will be an ongoing group, and it will get going as soon as we get enough members.

I have created an experimental space where I host some online conversations about the previous Sunday’s scripture & sermon, opening it up for deeper dialogue. If you have time throughout the week and want to respond with your own thoughts, comments, questions go for it. 
My hope is to make the process of listening, dialoging, and creating content for Sunday more community-based and participatory. I feel I learn so much from each of you and am interested in where God is leading us as a group.
