Lent and Holy Week at Grace
Tuesdays Together in Lent
From March 12 through April 9, 2019, we will gather on Tuesday evenings to play, pray, and join in large and small group discussions centered around the theme of journeying home, anchored by a shared reading of Henri Nouwen’s The Return of the Prodigal Son.
A Deeper Look
On Thursdays beginning March 21, Jim Quitslund will lead a brown bag book discussion from noon to 1 pm for those interested in a deeper examination of The Return of the Prodigal Son. Contact Jim to join in.
Additional Reading Material
- The Archbishop of Canterbury Lent books: Reconciliation by Muthuraj Swamy and The Merciful Humility of God by Jane Williams. These books are available to borrow from the Grace library.
- Lenten meditations, including those offered by Episcopal Relief and Development and Society of St. John the Evangelist.
