SEARCHING FOR GOD
Midweek Lenten Dinner and Program Series
Wednesdays, 6:30pm to 8pm, Beginning March 13
 

When you can, join us this Lent as we gather with our sisters and brothers from our partner church, St. Andrew's Pentecost Episcopal Church, for a simple dinner, fellowship, prayer, and study.  


We begin with a look at the history of Lent - how these 40 days and nights came to be set aside for a season of renewal.  Ever wondered, for instance, just what's the deal with the number 40?  Do I have to give something up for Lent?  Why?  Can I eat meat on Friday?

Going deeper we will learn about and try our hands at different prayer practices or spiritual disciplines.  

We will be guided by the interests of those who attend, but some topics and disciplines we might consider diving into include:

  • "This year my Lenten discipline is ...

  • fasting/giving something up

  • taking on something new

  • spiritual companionship

  • journaling

  • alms giving

  • hospitality

  • Christian meditation

  • reading scripture in community

  • praying Monday through Saturday

  • creating sacred space at work and at home

  • walking the labyrinth

  • developing a "rule of life"

  • keeping sabbath

  • the internet as a spiritual resource

  • practicing simplicity

We will gather weekly, alternating between St. Matthew's and St. Andrew's Pentecost. We will begin on time and we will end on time. We hope to see you there!
