Hello Minkisi Friend, I hope you’re well and getting ready for Advent which begins Sunday, November 27. This is a personal invitation for you to join the Minkisi ministry for its Advent Scripture Prayer and Reflection – Shedding the Light with Jesus! The registration is open for this evening gathering of companions along the Way, at 6:45-9:00 pm, ET, Monday, December 5, 2022, in Zoom.

As a child of God, you may have a sense of how God is calling you in our daily lives. May we reaffirm that we will talk the talk and walk the walk about what God has done through us to channel his love, mercy, and peace. Join us for this preparing the Way of the Lord. Since Jesus is the Light of the World, how have you experienced God shedding light to you?

Minkisi is a contemplative prayer and action ministry of Our Lady Queen of Peace Church, Arlington, VA. This is our 25th anniversary year! Thank you, Lord! In the December 5th evening session, our Minkisi group member Grace Rissetto will lead the meditation on: For God who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” has shone in our hearts to bring to light the knowledge of the glory of God on the face of [Jesus] Christ. (2 Corinthians 4:6)

In the second hour, we will read from Chapter 3—Imitating the Body of Christ’ in our Book Discussion from Fr. Josh Johnson’s book, On Earth As It Is In Heaven: Restoring God’s Vision of Race and Discipleship, Ascension Press. Please note: You do not need the book to participate.

About Minkisi Ministry

 Minkisi is in its 25th year of an interracial contemplative prayer and action ministry in Our Lady Queen of Peace Church, Arlington, VA. The word minkisi is a Kiswahili word that means ‘healing objects.’ As Catholic Christians, the Scripture-based Minkisi members see themselves as instruments of God’s love and peace. The 2022 annual theme is: Jesus is the Light of the World! Let Your Light Shine!  I am the light of the world, and he who follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life. (John 8:12)
