August is a banner month


August signals the end of summer vacations. Soon the fall season of activities will get under way, even though it's not officially autumn until late September. So let's wave our prayers for the coming months in the way of fabric flags. You draw your design or write your prayers on fabric squares we have at the monastery, and we'll string them all together as a community banner.

Journaling and group spiritual direction

Journaling as a way to tell one's story -- and sharing that walk in community with others -- is the aim for this group spiritual direction meeting. Monthly gatherings normally are the fourth Saturday of each month, guided by Amy Thompson. This month's event will be Saturday, Aug. 27, 10:30-Noon in the monastery's library.

What comes after dog days? Pet Days!

That's right. In September, we'll ponder how our pets touch our souls. A look at Spirituality of Pets will begin on First Friday, Sept. 2, 5:30-7 p.m. in downtown Bryan.  




The monastery presents itself spiritually as humbly as it does physically. Taking its name from the ancient phrase "via media," it is a picture of moderation between the "high" and "low" churches of the area


“My experience of church is churches are built for extroverts. It’s harder to find those quiet moments in a church’s life. … A place dedicated toward spirituality, meditation, contemplation, I think is necessary.”


On Friday evening, the Middleway Urban Monastery offered people the opportunity to walk for peace, as a form of experiential prayer, for the situation in Ukraine and other parts of the world in chaos.
