LECTIO DIVINA SERIES FOR LENT
THURSDAY MORNINGS OF LENT @ 7 AM ONLINE
The prophet Samuel said, “Speak, Lord, your servant is listening”. (1 Sam 3:10) This Lent, let’s ask the Lord to speak to us, and may we grow these 40 days as listeners.
Speak, Lord is a 7 week Lenten journey through Lectio Divina, which is Latin for Divine Reading. Each Thursday morning we will start our day together with a focused reading of the upcoming Sunday Gospel (lectio), we will then meditate on this Word from God (meditatio), contemplate what His Word is speaking into our life (contemplatio), and finally pray (oratio).
Materials needed: Internet connection, Bible, pen, highlighter and notebook.
STATIONS OF THE CROSS
FRIDAYS OF LENT @ 7 PM IN THE CHURCH
Join us weekly in the church for meditation on the Stations of the Cross, to grow in closeness to the suffering of Christ in preparation for Good Friday and Easter.
“He Himself bore our sins in His body on the Cross, so that, free from sins, we might live for righteousness; by his wounds you have been healed.” 1 Peter 2:24
