Upcoming Opportunities for Deepening Your Faith
As we move from the season after the Epiphany into Lent and journey toward Easter, there are lots of opportunities to “Lift our Hearts” toward God as those seeking to turn toward what really matters and to a life worth living. Beginning on March 11 and continuing for the remaining Monday evenings in Lent, Geoffrey and Emily will lead an Adult Enquirer’s Class for anyone wanting to refresh their knowledge about the basic tenets of what it means to call oneself an Episcopalian or to be confirmed or received into the Episcopal Church. A day-long Lenten Retreat called Living the Way of Love, to be held on Saturday, March 16, will endeavor to make the Benedictine Wisdom of 6th century monasticism accessible to busy 21st century lives. On Saturday March 30, Growing in Grace: A Spirituality of Aging, will be another day of inspiration, insight, exploration and play, led by The Rev’d Tracey Lind. Upcoming Sunday Morning Adult forums (10:15-11:05 am in Nourse Hall) include a continuing series on Confronting Racism, lessons on the declarative statement of faith we call The Nicene Creed, and a series on the Arts geared for the Lenten season. Have little ones in the House? On April 7 (10:15 am in room 301 in Satterlee Hall) join Emily Griffin and Kimberley Brown Smith for a workshop on Praying and Meditating with Children.
