As we all unwrap our 2016 calendars, it’s not too soon to circle Ash Wednesday on February 10th, the beginning of Lent.
The Adult Spiritual Formation Committee is now responsible for Sacred Circle programs, and, after careful thought, we have decided to try something new in place of the home gatherings UCC-Keene has done in recent years.
We are asking you to reserve the five Wednesday evenings after Ash Wednesday, February 17th through March 16th, for our series of Sacred Circle programs. An enthusiastic consortium of church committees is hard at work putting together plans for 5:30-7:30 evenings in the church with a format that will look something like this:
Light supper in the dining room
Brief worship service in the sanctuary
Break out into one of three seminar/roundtable/discussion sessions of your choice in the following areas:
- Intergenerational topics and activities
- Spiritual exploration
- Faith and the Arts
Benediction and dismissal from the sanctuary.
We hope you will find this year’s journey through Lent engaging and meaningful and hope you can be a part of as many of the programs as you’re able.
