Living Into Lent

Southern Deanery Lenten Program 2022

 

Join clergy from the Southern Deanery on four Wednesday evenings at 7 pm in March via Zoom Conference beginning March 9 as we explore spiritual ways to journey through Lent together.  The link to join these conferences is attached below. 

 

Session One:

Title: Through Unlocking the Scriptures

Wednesday, March 9 at 7 pm via Zoom

Presenter: The Very Rev. Mark Brinkmann

Lent invites us to “read and meditate on God’s Holy Word,” among other things. To that end, a question emerges: “How”?  This session is designed to provide a key to opening up the spirituality of the bible.

 

Session Two: 

Title: Through Confession and Forgiveness

Wednesday, March 16 at 7 pm via Zoom

Presenter: The Rev. Roy Tripp

Many of us are familiar with the form of “corporate confession" as it is found in many of our services throughout the Book of Common Prayer.  Yet, the connection between Reconciliation of the Penitent and forgiveness (for both the one offended and the one doing the offense) has often been overlooked. What role does forgiveness play in confession and, even more importantly, reconciliation? How does one enter into the difficult work to discover the renewal found in this timeless sacrament of the Church? Is forgiveness a lenten gift we are willing to extend to others and to ourselves as graciously as God extends to us?

 

Session Three: 

Title: Through the Eucharist

Wednesday, March 23 at 7 pm via Zoom

Presenter: The Rev. Bill Watson

At his final meal, Jesus offered his disciples the bread and the wine of the Eucharist.  The significance would not be revealed without the journey from Good Friday to the Resurrection of Easter.  Through the sacrament of the Eucharist, we encounter Jesus each week.

 

Session Four: 

Title: Through the Tree of Life

Wednesday, March 30 at 7 pm via Zoom

Presenter: The Rev. Jack Nietert

As we approach Holy Week, this session will lead us into an exploration of Christ’s atoning action on the Cross.  A few “understandings” of the meaning of the Cross will be touched upon.  The subject of God using the “Tree of Crucifixion” as the “Tree of Life” will also be introduced, that we, walking in the way of the Cross, may find it none other than the way of life and peace.
