Tending the Soil of the Spirit in Lent

Those of us who grew up in the Catholic or Lutheran or Episcopal Church may think of the season of Lent (those 6 weeks that lead up to Holy Week and Easter) as a penitential time, a period for noticing our missteps, or some hard-heartedness or hard-headedness that we lament in ourselves.

Yes, it’s true that Lent is a time for taking account, making a reckoning of our state of inner health. But it’s a time also to tend the soil. We are, as Ash Wednesday reminds us, earthy – humans. And so, given that spiritual truth, what can we do with the soil that we are?

This class offers us a variety of practices to work in the soil of the spirit – a different practice for each of the six weeks. Stephanie Ford and others will be facilitating this class. We hope you’ll join us for several, or all
of them!
