Wednesdays, November 6 & 20, 12:00 - 1:45 p.m. or 6:30 - 8:00 p.m. - Book Group: The Wisdom Jesus by Cynthia Bourgeault, First Congregational Church, 30 Main St., Binghamton, NY.
If you put aside what you think you know about Jesus and approach the Gospels as though for the first time, something remarkable happens: Jesus emerges as a teacher of the transformation of consciousness. Cynthia Bourgeault is a masterful guide to Jesus's vision and to the traditional contemplative practices you can use to experience the heart of his teachings for yourself.
Book:The Wisdom Jesus by Cynthia Bourgeault (available on Amazon.com and BN.com) if possible, please get the book and read Chapters 1, 2 and 12 before the first meeting.

Join us for the first of our monthly prayer services to help us choose the energy of “YES” in these troubled times. We at The Sophia Center plan to focus each month on a different concern by creating a service that one might call a “holy hour” that will call us to reflect on a core issue, share our willingness to meet the issue head on, and offer our prayer and silence for the eradication of its challenge and the restoration of hope.
All are welcome.
