Join Fellow Parishioners on Lenten Journey

Our priests, The Rev. Nick Morris-Kliment and The Rev. Jennifer Beal,  invite us to begin our annual Lenten journey on March 1, Ash Wednesday. As a congregation, we will focus this Lent on what it means to love our neighbor. As the disciples recall the teachings of Jesus, the heart of our commitment is to love the Lord our God with all our heart, soul, mind and strength, and our neighbors as ourselves (Matthew 22; Mark 12, Luke 10).

Lenten Book Group:

More than ever, we need to love our neighbors across our differences. To encourage us in the basic Christian practice of loving our neighbor, Rev. Nick invites us to gather to read and live out the ideas of this engaging book: Small Things with Great Love: Adventures in Loving your Neighbor, by Margot Starbuck. For six weeks, beginning on Sunday, March 5, we’ll be challenged seriously, and with good-humored faithfulness, to more deeply love our neighbor. You can join a gathering on Sunday mornings after Church in the Memorial Room; or on Wednesday evenings starting with a simple supper at 6 p.m. in the Upper Parish Hall. (Please call or email the office by the Monday before if you intend to come for supper, so we can plan for food.) You can purchase this book on line, or from your favorite independent bookstore.

Lenten Retreat:

On Saturday morning, March 11, from 9 a.m. – 12 noon, we will take a few hours to rest in God together. We will commandeer the Chapel as our space to immerse ourselves in that space’s offerings, particularly its beautiful windows. Soak up the peace of God. Become submerged in God’s words or silence. Bring with you your tools for lightening your load. Come, steep in Christ’s light. The Rev. Jennifer Beal will lead this retreat.
