Spiritual symbolism at UMC

AUBURN — United Methodist Church is offering a new winter prayer group, Discovering God in a New Way.

The prayer group will follow the book “Called Into Her Presence: Praying with Feminine Images of God” by Virginia Ann Froehle. 

“God is neither male nor female — any more than God is fire, rock, shepherd, shield, wind, king, light, or any other image we project, ” Froehle says.  

The goal of the prayer group is to enrich participants’ images of God to enhance prayer life.

The group will run for eight weeks on Sundays, Jan. 15 to March 5. Two times will be offered: after service from 11:45 a.m. to 12:45 p.m., and in the evening from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m.
