Morning Reflections

Happening online, Monday-Friday 8:15am to 8:45am. Join church members Kim Dunovan and Sharon Conlon for a period of reflection and silent meditation/prayer on Zoom. Whether you’re seeking a regular spiritual practice, or just wake-up some mornings needing a little extra support and connection to our church community. This is an informal drop-in and all are welcome! Each gathering will open with a short reading, followed by shared reflections and time for silent meditation/prayer. There is no need to purchase a copy, but for those who want to follow along, we will begin reading from Eknath Easwaran’s book Words To Live By: Daily Inspiration for Spiritual Living.  Email Kim for the Zoom link at
