We at Grace are working hard to stay connected and responsive to one another’s needs. Out of caution, all of the following programs for Lent have been cancelled.
EVENING FAITH FORMATION SERIES: ENCOUNTER
Tuesdays, March 3, 10 & 17, 7-8:30 pm
Join us during Lent as we enter three stories in the Gospel of John with spiritual director and retired hospice chaplain Maggie Finley (March 3); The Rev. Wren Blessing (March 10) and artist Christen Mattix (March 17).
Each session will begin with music; then we will hear from a speaker, engage in discussion, and end with prayer.
To keep our evenings simple, we'll forego our usual soup supper. Instead, please consider bringing an offering of bread, cheese, or fruit to share. We'll enjoy a full meal together at Shrove Tuesday and again on Maundy Thursday.
Tuesdays, March 17, 24 & 31 and April 7, 10 am – 12 pm
Using Joanna Macy’s map of the spiral journey, facilitator Deborah Milton will guide an examination of what it really means to be awake. Sessions will include a traditional talking circle; prompts from various women authors; creative expression for all; and giving and receiving blessings.
A QUIET LENTEN RETREAT
Saturday, March 21, 9 am – 12 pm
Deepen your Lenten journey by joining experienced facilitator, spiritual director, and artist, Elisabeth Rotchford-Haight, at Grace for a day of quiet contemplation, meditation, and creative reflection. This day is open to the community.
From Elisabeth: This is a guided quiet retreat, with time for individual reflection and group gathering. People are welcome to participate as they wish. I offer a guideline in the welcome and opening so there is clarity about how the retreat will run.
Let's Read the Whole Book Together!
We'll be reading the book of John during Lent in coordination with the lectionary. Find reading guides in the narthex or contact Kim. To engage beyond Tuesday evenings, join us at Grace on Wednesday mornings for midweek Eucharist at 10:30, and at 11:15 for a discussion of the gospel of John during Bible Study.
