Blessings to you on this Fat Tuesday/Shrove Tuesday/Mardi Gras/Ash Wednesday Eve! I continue to be so grateful for the opportunity to travel through Advent with so many of you on the Illuminated Retreat, and also to have you share in the Women's Christmas Retreat that I created for Epiphany this year. As we prepare to cross the threshold into Lent, I wanted to let you know about the new online retreat that I’ll be offering during this season. If you haven't already registered for the retreat, I would love for you to join us. Here’s a glimpse of what’s in store:
BELOVED: An Online Journey into Lent & Easter
February 18 – April 6
New for 2015!
This online retreat is not about adding one more thing to your schedule! It is about helping you find spaces for reflection that draw you into the mysteries and gifts of this season. Intertwining reflection, art, music, and community, this retreat offers a space of elegant simplicity as you journey through Lent.
You can join in the retreat from anywhere you are; you do not have to show up at a particular place or time. You’re welcome to engage the retreat as much or as little as you wish, in the way that works best for you. If you’re hungry for a simple way to move deeply into this season, this retreat is for you.
For more info and registration, visit Online Lenten Retreat or click the retreat logo above. That page also has a link to an FAQ page with further details. If you have any questions, or if you have any concerns about things that you think might hinder you from participating in the retreat, please be sure to visit these pages.
Individual and group rates are available. You can also give the retreat as a gift!
The season of Lent invites us to know, most of all, how completely God loves us, and to let go of everything that would keep us from receiving and responding to that love. This invitation is at the heart of the Beloved Lenten Retreat. If this sounds good to you—if you would like to lean into the love that enfolds and encompasses you—I would love to travel with you.
Blessings and peace to you as Lent begins!
