Cumberland United Church is hosting monthly gatherings of Friends of Silence.
Friends of Silence is an ongoing open group where we come together to reverence silence, prayer, contemplation, and the oneness of all creation, as well as to encourage the life-giving energy that derives from silence.
Our group is based on the model of the Friends of Silence. This is an international organization of all faiths and cultures that supports local groups to be in silence and prayer together. See http://friendsofsilence.net/.
The format is simple – a short reading, 45 minutes of silence, a short time for sharing and a closing chant.
The gatherings will be twice a month, the last Friday of the month in the evening from 7 to 8:15 p.m. and the second Tuesday of the month from 1:30 to 2:45 p.m. The first meeting will be on Friday, May 27 and then on Tuesday, June 14 at 1:30 p.m. There is no cost and the groups are open to all.
Cumberland United Church is at the corner of Penrith Avenue and First Street. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org
