Christian faith is not is not a relationship with ideas, but with a person - Jesus Christ. To understand what it means to be a Christian, we must strive to understand ever more deeply what it means to be in relationship with him. In the ancient church, this ongoing spiritual initiation was known as mystagogy - initiation into the mysteries of the life and death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
This Lent, you are invited to take this spiritual journey with us. Our parish mystagogy has three parts.
I. Reading Together. Our Lenten book is entitled, The Apostle's Creed: A Guide to the Ancient Catechism, by Anglican theologian Ben Myers. There are copies available at the church and this book is also easily available online. We will announce the chapters we are reading together each week.
II. Discussing and Praying Together. This upcoming Wednesday, our 5:45 Contemplative Practice Group will begin a study, linked with our Lenten book, on the Christian mysteries. This study will be interactive and experiential, as well as intellectual. All are invited to attend and join us for silent prayer in the sanctuary after each session.
III. Worshipping Together. The spiritual realities unveiled in worship are the heart of Christian mystagogy. Please strive to attend our Lenten worship services and the full panoply of our Holy Week services. You will not regret it!
