During Lent we are invited to ponder the mystery and paradox of death. Thus, we wonder—what happens when we die? In the private sanctuary of our mind and heart, we long to know the answer. This contemplative Lenten day of reflection considers the question through the lens of the scriptures, Jesus’ teachings, his post-resurrection experience, and the Christian mystics.
Through presentation, reflection and group sharing, we will tend to the hopes and aspirations of our hearts and therein prayerfully live into the question and experience a deeper awareness of what happens when we die.
Light breakfast and lunch will be served. A suggested donation of $40 will be gratefully accepted (but please don’t let finances keep you from attending.)
