Our theme for Lent is RETURN. During this season of reflection we return to the one who creates us, knows us and loves us – the Lord. We RETURN to the promises made in baptism that we are claimed, forgiven and given new life. We return to the identity God has given us. This season we will be intentionally returning to the people, places and promises of God.
“Return to the Lord, your God, for God is gracious and merciful, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love. ” Joel 2:13
RETURN: Lenten Weekly Spiritual Practices
Wednesdays, March 4 through April 1
6:00-6:30 pm and 7:15-7:45 pm, before and after Evening Lenten Worship
Sanctuary Room 203
Lent is a perfect time to explore new spiritual practices to grow and expand your faith life. Each week we will add a new spiritual practice to your faith toolbox. This will include, but not limited to, Lectio/Visio Divina, Examen, Breath Prayer, and more. Join Pastor Brian Norsman and other Pastors in learning a new weekly practice each followed by some deeper soul listening. These practices will be based on the book “Mindful Silence” by Phileena Heurtz and complement the Lenten Worship Theme “Return.”
