Broken and New: A Lenten Journey
What is broken in life often cannot be repaired. It’s about finding new ways to bring together the broken pieces to create a stronger story. In these times of deconstruction and unknowing, there are opportunities to take those pieces and begin creating something new, even if we don’t yet know what that’s going to be.
Using nature and our personal narratives as inspiration, join this weekly Lenten journey and explore where you may have an emerging sense of belonging and of offering yourself and your gifts to God’s beloved world. Led by the Rev. Dawn Stegelmann, each gathering will include a time of teaching, reflection and spiritual exercise prompts.
Fridays Feb. 24, March 3, 10, 17 and 24 online April 7 in-person at Pathways 1:30-3pm Cost: $180 for 6 sessions Facilitator: Dawn Stegelmann
