New Small Groups

Small groups are places to CONNECT – to grow closer to God, to connect with other people, and to share in a faith study or enjoy a common interest together. Learn more.

New small groups start throughout the year. In addition to the groups listed here, more small groups are in the planning stages for fall. Check back for the latest information. To find out more or to sign up for a group contact Denise Floe at dfloe@incarnationmn.org or 651-484-7213.

Many of us can identify with this place of exhaustion and long to find a source of refreshment. This book shows us the way to the wellspring of the Holy Spirit. When we find the energy for creative life change in God, we discover the courage to

  • Say no to an addiction and yes to life.
  • Gain new insight into how we are designed and linked to the web of creation.

Reading Richard Rohr Small Group

For information on future Reading Richard Rohr small groups contact Denise Floe.

Read and talk about Richard Rohr’s book, The Naked Now, while connecting with others in a small group setting. This book explores how to be more present to God and more present in each moment, drawing on the Christian contemplative traditions, the Gospels and Paul’s writings.  Discover God’s presence, peace and wisdom in daily life, in a world that often seems far from God.

Richard Rohr is a Franciscan and the founder of the Center for Action and Contemplation. In The Naked Now, he calls for setting aside dualist (either/or) perspectives, for a more contemplative, prayerful, awe-inspired approach to questions about faith, love, death, suffering, leadership, mystery and being awake to God’s presence. Rohr calls the naked now, “the sacrament of the present” and says that “when you can be present, you will know the Real Presence.” There will be short readings (10-15 pages) between each gathering. Leader: Anne Cremons. Suggested contribution: $10.
