Mystagogy: Living the Mysteries
Beginning in Advent, we are introducing an experience of mystagogy: time for reflection on what spoke to our hearts during service. As part of the “Sending Out” section of our worship—following the reception of Communion and before the Announcements—we will pause for a brief sharing.
The invitation will be:
Presider: In a single word or very short and simple phrase, please offer what just spoke to your heart during our worship this morning. We do not comment or reference other reflections. This is only a sharing of a word or short phrase that spoke to your heart.
Some may choose to share a word or simple phrase, none must. This will only take a few moments, but it is not rushed and some silences are welcomed as holy moments.
The presider will conclude this way:
Presider: We thank you, Great Spirit, for moving among us today. Now, let us attend to acts of ministry in the days ahead as we seek to fulfil our mission: to become like Christ as we serve others, proclaim God’s love, and grow in the Spirit.
Our faith needs mystagogy for one simple reason. We celebrate and proclaim a mystery: The divine mystery of our God become one of us, dying and rising for us, and calling us to live after the example of Christ.
Sharing what touched our hearts in a communal way, focuses our attention on the movement of the Spirit among us and enlarges our view and apprehension of grace in our midst.
