Forum Curriculum Now Available

January 17, 2020

We’re pleased to have once again partnered with Lifelong Learning at Virginia Theological Seminary in offering accompanying materials to support our upcoming lenten series. The full forum curriculum for Signs of Life: Why Church Matters is now available online.

Signs of Life: Why Church Matters is an opportunity for participants to engage with elemental aspects of liturgy and scripture: light, water, food, shelter, community. Each forum session will help participants connect the Sign of Life to their own spirituality, Christian worship, and a spiritual practice.

About the Daily Office


The Brothers’ worship schedule, what has traditionally been called the “Daily Office,” is described in the SSJE Rule of Life as:

“...a sustained act of union with Christ by which we participate in his unceasing offering of love to the Father. In reciting the psalms, singing canticles and hymns, proclaiming the divine word in Scripture, or lifting our voices in prayer, we are to enter more and more into the mind, heart, and will of Christ, and to be borne up by the Spirit in him to the Father.

"Our praying of the psalter, which is the heart of the Daily Office, takes us ever deeper into the mystery of the incarnation; the psalms give voice to the whole range of human experience which Christ has embraced and redeemed as the Savior of the world. As we sing and chant deep levels of our being are involved; our hearts are lifted up in greater exultation. And music enhances our worship with riches inherited from many ages.”
