We are Christians because we believe that the Holy One, who is pure Spirit, took on human flesh in Jesus. God created and loves the material world, including human bodies. Like every Lover, God wants the gift of our entire being. Because we are body/spirit creatures, we need to involve our visible bodies as well as our invisible spirits—minds and hearts—in our worship. We will reflect on the meaning(s) and value of specific liturgical rituals, such as the Sign of the Cross and the Sign of Peace. Noon Prayer with the monastic community at 11:30 a.m. is optional.
