Thoughts compiled by The Rev. Janne Osborne, Associate Rector –
* Pray and Worship: Morning Prayer is offered Monday-Friday, February 19 – April 2, in the Worship Space and beginning at 9 am. All are welcome – please talk to Lesley Margerrison. If you cannot attend, check out “The Daily Office” app from Mission St. Claire.
* Pray and Walk: The Rev. Janne Alrø Osborne will offer a guided Lenten labyrinth walk on Sunday, March 1, beginning at 3 pm. Lenten labyrinth walk resources for anytime, individual walks will also be available in the entryway beginning March 2.
* Pray and Walk: We have two sets of “Stations of the Cross”: a series of stations are displayed on the walls of the worship space during Lent. These are executed in silver point by parishioner artist Joshua Kight. We also have a bronze and wood outdoor series of stations on the west side of our grounds, going up the hill. These were moved from the old Bee Cave Road location to our present site. Prayer meditations are available before the first station, both in the worship space and on the hill.
*Pray and Read: Two books are recommended -
A Grown-up Lent: When Giving Up Chocolate Is Not Enough
Pilgrim Road: A Benedictine Journey Through Lent
Several copies of these books are available in the entryway (or you may wish to order via links above). Other resources are also in the entryway and look for each book’s table talk during the March 1 Taco Breakfast.
* Pray and Surf
STOP – PRAY – WORK – PLAY – LOVE
This great program from the Brothers of SSJE begins on Ash Wednesday and runs through to Palm Sunday and helps participants with their sense of time, achieving balance and embracing Sabbath wisdom. Three days of introduction are followed by five weeklong sessions on Stop, Pray, Work, Play and Love. Each day there is a video, a provocative question and a call to reflect either in the workbook or via social media. Participate online (join here) or simply use the workbook (available in entryway).
And last, but not least, no Lenten spiritual practice is complete without participating in Lent Madness!
