The winter holidays all focus on the need for light in the darkness. But it in this lull between the holidays, let’s pause to appreciate the darkness itself, not just as a backdrop that allows the light to shine, but in all of its own mystery and beauty.
Speaker: Rev. Libby Smith
If we want to build healthy communities, we need to tend to our individual health, to be mindful and intentional about how we choose to live. But in our fast-paced world, with its expectation that we be plugged in and ready to respond at a moment’s notice, it can be hard to claim the quiet time to go deeper and do that formative work. Remember when things slowed down for one day a week? Could we reclaim a sense of Sabbath time in our lives?
We’ve all had wilderness experiences–times when life confronts us with uncertainty, fear and discomfort. The season of Lent observed in Christian faith communities worldwide invites us to embrace the wilderness and see what it has to teach us.
