Don’t Miss Our Great Lenten Study on Wednesday Evenings at 6:00
Along with our friends at St. Phillip’s Episcopal Church, we will be using Ruth Haley Barton’s series called Sacred Rhythms: Spiritual Practices that Nourish Your Soul and Transform Your Life. Topics such as longing for more in our spiritual life, creating space for God, encountering God in scripture, and honoring the body, among others will be covered. We will not only talk about each “rhythm,” but will also practice the rhythm together. We will practice such things as breath prayer, lectio divina, and the Examen. Each participant will have the opportunity to create a rule of life for his or her own life which will point to cultivating your own sacred rhythms. Barton uses the beauty we encounter in creation to help set the tone for the rhythms of life that are all around us.
These Wednesdays at 6:00 p.m. we will be at St. Phillip’s Episcopal Church who will provide a light supper before the study: March 12, March 26, and April 9
These Wednesdays at 6:00 p.m. we will meet at St. Andrews and we will provide the light meal before the study: March 19 and April 2
St. Andrews welcomes you to please come and join us for our Ash Wednesday Service and communion tonight at 7:00 pm!
