Lenten Day of Reflection:
Saturday, Feb. 24th
9:30am to 1:00pm

Cup of Mercy — Can you drink this Cup?
(Commitment to live sacrificially as Christ did)

How do you set aside time for Lenten reflection and meditation?
Please join us for a morning and early afternoon time of guided meditation, silence, opportunity for journaling, art, and/or labyrinth contemplation as we explore Christ’s cup of mercy and the questions we have about Christ’s invitation for us to drink the cup during his Passion. Can we hold, lift, drink this cup of Jesus’ passion?

We will end our time with the Eucharist led by Pastor Janet. The leaders will be Susan McBerry, Albert Alter and Pastor Janet.

Suggested donation: $10
