What is the Tuesday Circle of Healing and Prayer?
At 9am the Red Door at 60 Church St. opens to the weekly Tuesday Circle of Healing and Prayer. At 9:30 together we gather in a circle around with each other. While we are there, we:
Receive a warm welcome with a snack and coffee
We pray for ourselves and for others, with each other
We reflect on Sacred Writings and then share where they touch us here and now
We sing with each other
Circle is followed with a hot meal or great snacks to go
Individual prayer and anointing is offered
Hear how attendees describe it for themselves:

A sacred circle of trust – D.W.
A hallowed place where God’s everlasting love and acceptance prevail – L.M.
A safe, sanctioned refuge for restoration of one’s soul – E.M.
Real time issues are discussed, and it helps me get through the week – D.R.
The group is diverse and insightful, and I'm inspired to open up more – M.R.
Led by a holy man who extends the open arms of Jesus to all
“I never wanted to change the world. I only wanted to be a drop of pure water that reflects God’s love.”
"Help me, Holy One, to be a drop of pure water today" …Brother John
