First Sunday of Lent: Listening Spaces
March 6 @ 10:00 am
Lent 2022: Listen
Sometimes we just need to get away in order to hear from that “still small voice” within. This quiet voice is an attribute of the Holy Living God, as Elijah found out when he retreated to a cave where he expected to experience God in big wind and earthquake and fire. What is your “cave?” What place– perhaps a park, a path, a rocking chair, a shoreline– and what practice–such as walking, journaling, reading, or making art–helps you get quiet enough for long enough so you can hear past the chaos and into the depths of your life? This Lent we will quiet things down and heighten our attention to the “still, small voice” of God and our own true self. Listening through prayer as well as meditation on sacred texts is an ancient Lenten practice. So, let us come and rest, come and listen.
We will celebrate communion this Sunday. For those joining us for worship online, please bring bread and juice to your home worship space.
Additional resources: The Daily Examen is a technique of prayerful reflection on the events of the day in order to detect God’s presence and discern God’s direction for us. The Examen is an ancient practice in the Church that can help us see God’s hand at work in our whole experience.
