Lenten Quiet Day
On Saturday, March 19, from 9:00 – 3:00 we’re planning a Lent “Quiet Day” here at Grace. The idea of taking a quiet day in Lent is to help us set time aside for what the season might offer: an opportunity to reflect on our own mortality or shortcomings, a chance to refocus on our faith and how we live that out, a time to recommit to what we undertake each time we go through the Baptismal Covenant. For us here at Grace, we might also simply consider it an opportunity to embrace all that we have as we step away from any hustle and into the sanctuary space our campus offers.
The theme for our Quiet Day this year will be “Growing in grace” and we’ll use some of Jesus’ gardening parables to reflect on the shape our own faith takes. We’ll use videos of talks by Jewish New Testament scholar Amy-Jill Levine, a professor at Vanderbilt University Divinity School and do some study and exploring together in the morning. After lunch, there will be several different options for reflecting in a way that makes most sense to you – creative, active, quiet, not-so-quiet, etc. before we close with worship.
