The Gospel of Thomas Series  The first and third Wed. of the month 1:30 to 3:00 pm beginning Feb. 6, 2019. Center for Spiritual Awakening, Christ Lutheran Church, 1245 W. Hamilton St, Allentown, PA.  Discovered in a cave in Egypt in 1945, the Gospel of Thomas is a collection of 114 sayings of Jesus. Rather than being narratives, they are more like koans or riddles. They appeal more to the heart and imagination than to reason. You are invited to attend ongoing gatherings to explore this gospel using the prayer form of lectio divina (Latin for Divine Reading). Direct questions and registration to Mary Howe: mhowe@rcn.com

Wisdom Way of Knowing – 4/26 from 3 to 5:30 pm.  Center for Spiritual Awakening, Christ Lutheran Church, 1245 W. Hamilton St, Allentown, PA. This monthly gathering will introduce the rhythm and tools of a ‘Wisdom way of knowing’, an ‘integral way of knowing’ which engages and harmonizes our three intelligence centers: heart, mind and movement. This will be an experiential gathering with a balance of centering, teaching, Lectio Divina and gentle body prayer. Together we will explore ways to weave the different components of Wisdom into our daily life and spiritual practice. RSVP to marcellak2@aol.com
