Courageous Conversations - October 28

Responding to the Catholic Church Clergy Sex Abuse Crisis

Christ Our Light will hold a gathering to provide time for our parishioners, and anyone else who is interested, to come together to pray and discuss the clergy/church leadership sex abuse crisis that is rocking our church.  Many people are experiencing deep sadness, anger, confusion, pain, and suffering due to these horrific charges, allegations, and cover up.  It is heartbreaking to learn of the suffering of the victims, and to hear that leaders in our church opted for scandal-management over the protection of children and the well-being of adults.  We need safe places and relationships to face and respond to the Catholic Church Clergy Sexual Abuse Crisis.  We need opportunities to gather together to reflect, pray, and listen to each other to discover and assign meanings to this experience.  Trained facilitators will help guide us in small groups, and will be available for individual conversations as needed.

Please join us on Sunday, October 28, from 1-3 PM to engage in Courageous Conversations that can help move us forward into the healing and hope that Christ, who is our Light, promises.  We invite you to pre-register for the gathering by clicking here to register online, or by contacting Cathy Johnson at This email address is being protected from spambots.

Question of the Week

Week of October 14, 2018

Mark 10: 17 - 27

Adults:  

How do you keep possessions from getting in the way of your relationship with God?

We offer this form of contemplative sharing for pondering Scripture while considering the question, and for the faith sharing which follows.

-  Listen/ Read (Lectio): Ponder God’s word and listen for what touches your heart.
-  Meditate (Meditatio): Notice what you notice. Allow God’s word to resonate in you.
-  Speak/Share (Oratio): Prayerfully share with the group your thoughts and feelings.
-  Rest in God’s presence (Contemplatio): Notice God’s presence and be still, surrounded by God’s love.


Teens:

What possession would be most difficult for you to give up?


Children:

What toy would you give up if Jesus asked you to?
