Meditation:

Come, My Way, My Truth, My Life
by George Herbert

Come, my Way, my Truth, my Life:
such a way as gives us breath;
such a truth as ends all strife;
such a life as killeth death.

Come, my Light, my Feast, my Strength:
such a light as shows a feast;
such a feast as mends in length;
such a strength a makes his guest.

Come, my Joy, my Love, my Heart:
such a joy as none can move;
such a love as none can part;
such a heart as joys in love.


Collect for the Week

O Almighty God, whom truly to know is everlasting life: Grant us so perfectly to know thy Son Jesus Christ to be the way, the truth, and the life, that we may steadfastly follow his steps in the way that leadeth to eternal life; through the same thy Son Jesus Christ our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with thee, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

The end of the year is a roller coaster of feelings, thoughts, anxieties, worries, fears, joys, and excitement. Is it possible to be peaceful in the midst of this? Absolutely. The key is to learn to live fully in the present moment with a deep acceptance of things as they are. This experiential workshop will draw from meditation practices, discussion, and inquiry. We will explore practices, tools and principles for finding peace, balance, and calm amidst the change and busyness of our lives.
