Lenten Book Series, Wednesdays, 6-7pm

In the same spirit as Howard Zinn’s groundbreaking work A People’s History of the United States, Diana Butler Bass’ A People’s History of Christianity brings to life the movements, personalities, and spiritual disciplines that have informed and ignited Christian worship, practices and activism through the centuries.

The title simply sets the focus away from institutions and hierarch and bids us to reflect on something far more essential to the Christian faith – us! Join us each Wednesday in Lent, beginning March 12th for a guided exploration of the book, A Peoples’ History of Christianity: The Other Side of the Story by acclaimed author and former New York Times columnist Diana Butler-Bass. Come and see why people are talking about this book!

Lenten Quiet Day

Saturday, March 29th, 10am-3pm
St. Thomas Hearth Room

How’s the growing going?
At this midpoint in our journey from Ash Wednesday to Easter come away to a quiet place to check in with your spirit and with God. Renew your Lenten discipline…listen for the longing of your heart…pray with some of the folks who encountered Jesus and learn from them how to allow God to transform you: Nicodemus, the Woman at the Well, The Blind Man or Lazarus.

Prayer stations will be set up, as will quiet corners to rest and pray. Come!

Pastor Mary will provide lunch. Click here to please let her know if you plan to come!
