Class: The Practices of Lent
Wednesday March 09 – Wednesday, April 06
(see note below)
(Every Wednesday from 7:00pm – 8:00pm)
Lent is often portrayed as a journey, from one point in time (Ash Wednesday) to another point in time (Easter Sunday). By whatever measure the journey is evaluated, it is not only the time that is
important but the essential experiences of the journey that are necessary for a full appreciation of what is being celebrated.
However, the Lenten journey is also a process of spiritual growth and, as such, presumes movement from one state of being to another state. As we travel this journey together, we invite you to join us in the sanctuary on Wednesdays for the next 5 weeks as we engage a different spiritual practice each week. Each practice is an invitation to open, broaden, and deepen our awareness to God’s Presence in our everyday lives.
Each week will have a different theme or emphasis that we hope will be beneficial in helping us to grow and continue faithfully in our journey together. Listed below are the themes for which our spiritual practices will be centered around:
March 09: Solitude & Silence
March 16: Reflection, Meditation, & Prayer
March 23: Fasting
March 30: Self-Examination, Confession & Repentance
April 06: Simplicity
Added last class: THURSDAY, April 14 -7 pm
