Lenten Pastorates 2020 web

Spiritual and communal practices for sharing in the life of God

Five Pastorates will be offered during Lent this year, each exploring a different spiritual practice as we prepare our hearts for Holy Week and Easter. We have fewer Pastorate options this year because we are also encouraging everyone to participate in our Catechism Class, which will cover the newly revised ACNA catechism called To Be a Christian. Feel free to participate in both the class and a Pastorate, or choose whichever you feel will benefit you the most spiritually. Sign up in the foyer.

Making Space for God
Begins Wednesday, March 4 at 6:00 pm
Facilitator: Landon Preston
It’s all too easy to allow busyness, distractions, and the everyday demands of life to take our attention away from communing with God. But how do we even get to a place where we can hear and speak to God? In this four-week Pastorate, we will read and apply Henri Nouwen’s The Way of the Heart to explore how the Desert Fathers applied solitude, silence, and prayer as paving the way to communicate with God. Each week we will practice a new technique and learn how to share with God while listening to his Spirit.

Walking in the Way of the Lord
Begins Wednesday, March 4 at 6:00 pm
Facilitator: Fr. Brian Larsen Wells
Thomas Merton said, “As we go about the world, everything we meet and everything we see and hear and touch plants in us something of heaven.” Join us this Lent as we develop the spiritual practice of walking in attentiveness to the beauty of God’s Creation and in awareness of our calling within it. Each week, we will read a lesson describing how we might better love mercy, act justly, and walk humbly with our God. Then we will reflect on these readings as we take 10–15-minute walks through our neighborhoods and our city.
