Sundays at 6:00 PM–7:00 PM EST
Moderator/Facilitator: Rev. Mark Anthony Lord, M. Div
About the Meeting:
Spiritual Awakening with Rev. Mark Anthony Lord (yep, that’s his real name) is a weekly inspirational gathering focused on helping the members of the group establish and grow in the “God of your understanding”. Group members are supported in deepening in the spiritual practices of the program – meditation, prayer, forgiveness, surrender, and more. This meeting creates a safe space to grapple with God, heal religious trauma, and gain practical tools on how to live a more spiritual life—one day at a time.
Meetings will begin with an opening meditation and prayer. Next, Mark will share an uplifting, thought-provoking message that takes the group on a deep dive into the prayers, meditations, and spiritual power of the program. It often includes creative healing experiences, like guided meditations and journaling, followed by sharing and closing in prayer.
This group is a non-religious zone where all are welcome.
