Lent 2019

Lent is a season for reflection on God’s call on each of us, as the prophet Joel implores us, to “return to the Lord your God.”

Devotional books for Lent are available in the Narthex.  The book, Lasting Hope, is available in pocket size and large print. Lasting Hope is based on the Psalms that will be used in our communal worship during Lent and Holy Week.

Lenten Haiku

This opportunity includes: prayer, study, meditation and spiritual renewal.  Haiku is a small 3-lined poem.  Step-by-step hints about writing haiku will be offered. Writing haiku reduces the busy clutter of our daily living and opens our hearts and minds to the beauty that surrounds us.  Prayerfully consider this Lenten challenge.

 

 

Lenten Study

Lenten Study – Pastor Kris and Pastor Ginger are leading a series called “Christ Centered Community” on Wednesdays during Lent. In this series, participants will discuss various groups of Christians (past and present) whose faith is empowered by their communal practices.  Some individuals and their communities that we are discussing include Thomas Merton, Henri Nouwen, Kathleen Norris, and Shane Claiborne.

This series takes place on Wednesdays through April 10. Lenten soup suppers begin at 5:30pm and the class begins at 6:00pm in the Parish Life Center. Vespers worship services follow in the sanctuary at 6:45pm.
