Our Practice this Lent
Scroll down to find links to the poems.
This Lent, we will share a common practice guided by Wendell Berry and the Sabbath Poetry of Lent, a booklet of scripture, poetry, reflection, and daily practices to move us through this rich season. We will use it to pray and practice at home on our own and, for those who want to, come together as a community to reflect on how the Spirit is guiding us through this practice.
We will meet every Friday in March at 6:30 p.m. in Springwater Studio to drink tea, talk, and listen for the Spirit in one another. That's March 6, 13, 20 & 27.
The booklets are available in the Narthex on Sundays or in the church office during the week during office hours. You don't have to be part of the group to participate. Feel free to take a booklet and practice on your own.
