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

Summer Sundays, 8:45 am, Room 207
Contact: Linda Nelson, (952) 894-6145, or Karen Seashore
Summer session will begin on June 3 with The Book of Joy: Lasting Happiness in a Changing World, Dalai Lama and Desmond Tutu, Douglas Abrams, (2016). This sparkling, wise, and immediately useful gift to readers from two remarkable spiritual masters offers hope that joy is possible for everyone even in the most difficult circumstances and describes a clear path for attaining it.

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.

Women’s Spirituality

On break during the summer; Sept–May, Sundays, 9:45 am, Room 211
We collectively explore the feminine face of God through ritual, readings, meditation with “A Pocketful of Miracles” and walking the labyrinth. There will be guest leaders, Goddess banners, story and laughter.

Prayer Shawl Knitters

Meets first Sunday of every month, room 209, September–May
