Still wednesday

Still Wednesday is on a summer break.

Join us again on Wednesdays starting September 12 for a time of candlelight meditation and still reflection.

St. Paul's Sanctuary or Octagon

7:00-8:00 p.m.

Feeling called to quiet, stillness, and community in a world that is all too loud? 

Each Still Wednesday is a unique opportunity to deepen your relationship with the divine. 

From 7:00 to 8:00 p.m., Still Wednesday offers prayer and silence in a variety of formats: walking meditation, lectio divina, poetry, journaling, art or music, all dependent on who is facilitating. Most evenings will include about 20 minutes of silent prayer. 

Still Wednesday is held in either the Sanctuary or Octagon at St. Paul's. 

We meet weekly September through June, then take a break in July and August.

No need to RSVP, simply come as you are able.

Still WEekend

Friday October 19 through Sunday October 21

Dayspring Retreat Center, Germantown MD

True stillness comes naturally in moments of solitude when we allow our minds to settle. Just as water seeks its own level, the mind will gravitate towards the Holy. As muddy water will become clear if it is allowed to be still, so too will the mind.

Join us for the Still Weekend retreat at Dayspring Retreat Center in Germantown MD. There will be time to explore 200+ acres of forest and meadow, walk the labyrinth, use materials for creative expression, or simply be still without a cloud of daily noise. 

All are welcome. Space is limited, so please register early. Registration deadline is October 5. To reserve a spot, go to  - you may register and pay online, or download the form to fill out and mail. The deposit is $110. The total cost is $220. 

St. Paul's Still Weekend guides include Rev. Kate Mackereth Fulton, Marty Bartley, Sallie Chatfield, Molly Jackman, Kenzie Raulin, and Terri Lynn Simpson.

Come, come whoever you are,

wanderer worshiper, lover of leaving--it doesn't matter.

Ours is no caravan for despair.

Come even if you have broken your vows a thousand times.

Come, once again come.
