All along our life journey God calls us into spiritual and intellectual growth. In search of that growth, the Mayflower community engages in prayer, meditation, study, education, and discussion on a wide range of topics in classes, lectures, and ongoing Learning Communities.

Learning Communities

Contemporary Theologies

Sundays starting Jun 2, 8:45 am, Minnehaha Room
Contact: Linda Nelson, (952) 894-6145, or Karen Seashore 
The book for the summer is Becoming Wise: An Inquiry into the Mystery and Art of Living. Peabody Award winning broadcaster and National Humanities Medalist Krista Tippett has interviewed extraordinary voices examining the great questions of meaning for our time. Tippett distills the insights she has gleaned from these luminous conversations into a coherent narrative journey. This book offers a grounded and fiercely hopeful vision of humanity for this century. The process of sharing our responses to the text yields a learning experience and community, fellowship and new connections for our faith journeys. Visitors and new participants are always welcome (bring a copy of the book).

Centering Prayer

Thursdays from 6:30–7:00 pm
We begin with some Psalms for praying, sit for 20 minutes in silence, and close with the Lord’s Prayer.
