Mid Week Lenten Reflection: What It Means to Rise from the Dead

Wednesday, Feb 24 | 7:30 pm

Even the disciples who are closest to Jesus debate with each other what it is “to rise from the dead” (Mark 9:10). How do we wrestle with this central Christian teaching, about Jesus and about ourselves, in the midst of a pandemic? As we work for social justice? As we face a climate crisis? Weekly gatherings on Wednesdays in Lent will reflect on these questions and more with music, art, story, and contemplation. Come to them all, or drop in as you can. February 24: What It Means to Live!

See your weekly e-notice or contact the office for the Zoom link.
