PATHWAYS TO PRAYER
Series Two

Be part of a webinar on Sat. Feb. 2 and 9, 11:30 - 2, gathering with Lutherans from across western Canada. Here in Thunder Bay we will be meeting at Hilldale Lutheran Church. The cost is $25 for 1 session, or $45 for both. Please see Pastor Matthew re registration.

There are many ways to respond to God in prayer.
Perhaps one of the most familiar is the Lord’s Prayer.
How might this rich and simple prayer, which Jesus gave his disciples when they asked him how to pray, become more meaningful for us? On February 2nd join Dr. Faith Nostbakken once more as we consider the Lord's Prayer and its invitation to intimacy with God.We'll examine its call to radical living that addresses injustice, extends grace, and abides in hope.

On February 9th, we'll delve into how approaching Scripture with our imaginations may be a way of listening to God. Some may say, “I have no imagination.” Others may be suspicious of scripture as a pathway to prayer.
Jesus’ own parables and sayings, however, relied on the imaginative engagement of his hearers.

Reserve 107. This powerful film centres on the true story of what happens when a group of Mennonites and Lutherans in the town of Laird SK discover that the land on which they live is in fact the former reserve of the Young Chippewayan First Nation.  Through storytelling, we hear about an unique movement in history, where relationships are formed.
