Wednesday, Feb. 25th ~ Lectio Divina ~ @ St. Marks ~ 10 a.m.

If you have never experienced lectio, consider taking 40 mintues of your day to focus on the biblical text with a group of people who are following Jesus.

It's not a difficult practice; it won't make you uncomfortable. Our time together will simply center you on the biblical text.

~ When you arrive at the gate, push the speaker button and let the receptionist know that you are with the emergent west michigan people. She'll gladly let you into the parking lot.

St. Marks is located at 134 Division Ave N, Grand Rapids, MI 49503. You should join us; it is one of the oldest public buildings in Grand Rapids, and it is absolutely beautiful.


Tapestry would like to invite you to a gathering of people who desire to be agents of change in the Kingdom of God in their community.

Explore creative ways to engage our neighbors in relationships of mutuality towards a common vision for transformation. Join fellow Jesus followers as we learn new tools to discover God's heart for our community and to realize a vision for "God's kingdom come, God's will be done, in cities everywhere as it is in heaven."

Hear stories and learn about ways that we can inspire, connect, and mobilize people towards personal and community transformation. This will be lead by leaders of an organization called Kingdom Causes based out of the Long Beach, California, that has been helping the surrounding communities be transformed for the past 5 years. See more info about Kingdom Causes. When: Sunday, March 1, 2009 from 2-5PM Where: The Youngberg Auditorium at Hackley Hospital (1700 Clinton St, Muskegon, MI 49442) Please RSVP via reply to this email or to Carlos Avrard: (231) 728-3117; email: carlos@communityencompass.orgIf you have any questions, please contact me at or (517) 204-8952.Peace, Eric
