Lent Quiet Day – The Truth About Freedom

March 5 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm

$75

Lent is derived from the Anglo-Saxon word for “spring.” It denotes the lengthening of days. In Christian practice, it is a time for honest introspection and long reflection on the life and work of Jesus and readies us for an entry into Holy Week culminating in the celebration of Resurrection. We believe we are made free because of the work of Christ. But do we live out the fullness of our freedom or do we have too limited a view? This Lent, our challenge is to exercise true freedom, not out of a power-based liberty, but from the strength of self-giving Love. Our only source of this Love is Union with God and others. 

Join us to explore the truth about freedom through an examination of Jesus and The Disinherited, by Howard Thurman. Read the book ahead or come for the gleanings. 

Presenter: Naomi Wenger
Suggested Donation: $75; lunch included, any donation gratefully received
