Canterbury Irvine Episcopal Fellowship http://canterburyirvine.org Tue, 12 Jul 2016 06:16:03 +0000 en hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=3.2.1 Incarnation of the Love of God http://canterburyirvine.org/2013/09/incarnation-of-the-love-of-god/ http://canterburyirvine.org/2013/09/incarnation-of-the-love-of-god/#comments Thu, 05 Sep 2013 01:08:09 +0000 Martha http://canterburyirvine.org/?p=154 Serving as a campus minister at UC-Irvine, one of the most dynamic campuses in the University of California system, has constantly reminded me that it is not our human flesh but the transcending power of the Holy Spirit that makes it possible for a campus ministry like Canterbury Irvine to reach out to those who live, work and learn on campus and to serve their needs, regardless of age, race, culture, gender, or nationality. In fact, it has been the goal of this Canterbury Community at UCI to incarnate the love of God by providing a space for exploration, prayer, friendship, sharing, service, growth, and a feel of home away from home, so that not only people who join may have a sweet taste of the love of God but the value of the Kingdom of Heaven may also be able to be lived out on campus through the life and work of this loving campus fellowship. I pray that the fire of the Holy Spirit will be stirred up continually in this Canterbury community at UCI to inflame those who join and to make them powerful witnesses to the love of God wherever they go on campus!

Canterbury Irvine and I http://canterburyirvine.org/2013/09/canterbury-irvine-and-i/ http://canterburyirvine.org/2013/09/canterbury-irvine-and-i/#comments Wed, 04 Sep 2013 23:49:45 +0000 Martha http://canterburyirvine.org/?p=145 Some people look forward to Friday each week, but for me Thursday is my favorite day, since every Thursday I can look forward to a wonderful evening of spiritual fellowship, delicious food, and a general sense of camaraderie at Canterbury.  In the hustle and bustle of daily pursuits & obligations, it can be easy to forget the important stuff that really matters, such as faith, family, and friends.

Canterbury provides a time to get re-centered, and focused on the peaceful and essential things. Going every week brings me balance and comfort that can be hard to find other places. It is a welcoming community that means so much to me!

All Saints & All Souls http://canterburyirvine.org/2010/08/test-blog-2/ http://canterburyirvine.org/2010/08/test-blog-2/#comments Mon, 16 Aug 2010 16:25:44 +0000 Martha http://canterburyirvine.org/?p=81 “We will all die,” writes anthropologist Arthur Frank, “and that is all right.” In our era of heroic measures to extend life without question, exemplified so often in television dramas in which exemplary doctors do the impossible, it is hard to imagine death as something to be celebrated, death as part of that which we as Christians regard as part of the community, the communion, of saints from time ancient to now and into the future. In Mexico, in Asia, and in places around North America, families, neighborhoods, whole communities gather to remember not only those who have died but to remind ourselves that they and we remain part of this intimate fabric that the pang of separation only makes more clear. On November 4th, Canterbury Irvine will honor the traditions of that many communities from which our students hail in a special All Souls/All Saints celebration that incorporates rituals and practices from Mexico, Korea, Japan, China and the Philippines. We invite you to join us.

Prov VIII: San Francisco http://canterburyirvine.org/2010/08/test-blog-1/ http://canterburyirvine.org/2010/08/test-blog-1/#comments Mon, 16 Aug 2010 16:25:20 +0000 Martha http://canterburyirvine.org/?p=79 This past March 26-28, three members of Canterbury Club went and joined up with Canterbury Clubs from many of the colleges and universities around the western U.S. in San Francisco.  The theme of the weekend was “Ignatian Spirituality” and included a pilgrimage walk around the city, worship, and fellowship.  Here are refections from the students who went, Marina White and Jonathan Lopez:

“I appreciated the guidance that was offered by our leaders at this retreat, as I started each day with reflection & ended it the same. I also enjoyed the sense of camaraderie  and adventure that I experienced with the other attendees.” – Marina White

“.  I am deeply grateful for the opportunity that was given to me by attending Prov 8. I thank the Lord our God who has been there since the beginning of not only the world but also my birth. God, I believe, has done many wonderful things in people’s lives including mine. Attending a retreat that was far away from home and not knowing what to expect gave me an anxiety. I was afraid that I would not fit in and be the outcast of the whole group. Nonetheless, I was thrilled and pleased to meet wonderful people who I soon became friends and bonded with. I was going through a rough time with family before attending Prov 8, and I felt as though I needed to go away for a weekend. I am glad I decided to attend the retreat because it not only gave me the chance to express myself and feel as though I could actually be able to breath again, but it also brought me closer to God. I was afraid that my connection to God was fading away little by little; however, by going to San Francisco and doing the exercise that was assigned to us by going to different places and reflecting on our experience with the word of God, I felt that I had found the answers I was looking for. I am glad I did not take this trip for granted; instead I decided to go and I have no regrets whatsoever. I encourage anyone to go and not think twice about the trip. It is worth-while and it will change your life forever and I say it from personal experience. A word of advice, give it your all and put heart to it. Let God be your guide in this journey. God Bless you and the name of the Father, the Son and The Holy Spirit.” – Jonathan Lopez
