In each session, we explore a different brief sacred text in depth, using a spiritual-practice approach. The aims of the sessions are educational (learning something about the texts and traditions), spiritual/moral (discovering what the texts ask of us), and community-building (getting to know each other better). We define “sacred” broadly; texts have ranged from poetry by Emily Dickinson to mystical parables like The Conference of the Birds to passages from the Bible. It is what we seek in ourselves via the text that is sacred.

Amy will have a version of the text available to share; “bring” your own if you like. All are welcome, as are your suggestions of future texts.

On Saturday, August 15, our text is Proverbs 31:10-31. Here is the King James Version–this website also has a drop-down menu of dozens of translations so you can see as many as you like.

A weekly online sacred text reading group with Amy

Using a spiritual-practice approach, in each session we will explore a different brief scriptural text in depth. The aims of the sessions are educational (learning something about the texts and traditions), spiritual/moral (discovering what the texts ask of us), and community-building (getting to know each other better). Amy will have a version of the text available to share; “bring” your own if you like. All are welcome, as are your suggestions of future texts. About half our readings so far have been those suggested by group members.
