Prayers for Repentance & Reconciliation
Fridays, February 19 to March 26, 12 p.m.
Pause for a few moments on Fridays in Lent to be nourished by the ancient words of scripture and to pray a special Litany of Repentance. The service will be led by members of St. Paul’s Sacred Ground circles, a ministry of the Episcopal Church that fosters racial healing, reconciliation, and justice. By embracing the Lenten call to prayer, self-examination, and repentance, we’ll discover the joy of new life in Christ that resides at the heart of this season. Register to join us on Zoom (below) or watch on our Facebook page.
An Exploration of the Gospel of Mark
Wednesdays, February 24 to March 24, 7 p.m.
This Lenten Bible Study will explore the Gospel of Mark — the primary source of our Sunday Gospel readings for this year. The sessions will shine a spotlight on Mark’s unique approach to telling the “good news of the story of Jesus, the Son of God” and will combine tools of historical, literary, and textual analysis to unearth the riches of this earliest and shortest of the four gospels. No advance preparation is needed, and those interested can join at any point in the series. The sessions will be led by the Rev. Brandon Ashcraft.
A River Through the Desert
Sundays, February 21 to March 28, 10 a.m.
In this year’s Lent forum offering, we’ll travel to Israel and explore the geography of the Holy Land in a virtual pilgrimage from St. George’s College Jerusalem. We’ll walk where Jesus walked and see the desert, the water well, the mountain, the sea, the road, and, finally, the garden where Jesus prayed. We are seeking the presence of God and hope to meet the Risen Christ. Register for the series on Zoom.
