March 5th - Continuing the Green Team's presentation from February 26th on simpler living/compassionate life, we will form talking circles to interact together exploring thoughts, questions and experiences– past, present and future – that put the ideas for a simpler life into practice. There are no experts, so come engage in conversation with us. May our lives be enhanced by our intentions and choices as we abide in creation, one of God's blessings for all beings.
March 12th and 19th– Spiritual Disciplines, A Two Part Series: "As we continue following Jesus through our Lenten journey we sometimes wonder, are we becoming like Jesus? Can we be like Jesus? Join Phil Waite in the Forums on March 12 & 19 where we'll explore the concept of Spiritual Formation - that is, becoming like Jesus - and the spiritual practices we can engage that support our formation."
March 26th – We will focus on the liturgies of Holy Week during this adult forum. Palm/Passion Sunday marks the beginning. The transition from death to life that takes place over the course of the Triduum or the Three Days (Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, and the Easter Vigil) is the most intense of the Christian story. To prepare for this pilgrimage we will reflect on the history of this week and its ties to the Jewish Passover and the early church. We will take a look at the various environments that are created and why. Our goal is to gain an appreciation for the way simple, primary symbols of these days draw us into a richer understanding of these signs of grace.
