On these three Saturday’s we will explore a variety of spiritual practices under the heading head, heart and hands. The morning will include some history of the practice, an explanation of “how” and an opportunity to experience in community the practice under discussion. There will be plenty of time for questions, and sharing of experience.
Come for one or all three no registration is necessary.

A weekly bible study offered by The Rev. Dr. Chris Breuninger. This will go beyond Lent and initially will be for four weeks, a break and then another 3 weeks. The Letter to the Ephesians will be the first study.

Saturday March 21, 2020 from 10:00 to 4:00 p.m.

The Rev. Suzanne Fageol will offer a Lenten Quiet Day. The day will be spent in silence. There will be meditation, prayer, and time to simply walk, read, or sit in quiet. A light soup, bread lunch will be served. If you have never experienced a quiet day I encourage you to try it. It takes a bit of getting used to but silence is the missing commodity in most of our lives. “For God alone my soul in silence waits; from him comes my salvation.” Psalm 62:1

The Adult Forums continue on Sunday morning at 9:30 in Campbell Hall.
There are a wide variety of subjects covered. Check the E-Pistle or the Sunday bulletin for specific offerings.

Classical Music Concerts during Lent:
Saturday, March 7th at 7:30 p.m. – Salish Sea Music Festival – Burney’s Travels

There are lots of opportunities and lots of options outlined here. It is not expected that everyone will do everything. That would result in spiritual indigestion! Pick and choose things will be offered again. If you have ideas as to what you might like to see offered beyond Lent please let Joan Anthony or Teresa DiBiase know by e-mail or in person.
