Community Encounters Lent
Along with other Elders and Diaconate, I am taking advantage of the book, Wondrous Encounters by Richard Rohr, that Rev. Shanna encouraged us to read each day during Lent. This is my first experience in dedicating a daily time of reading the Bible, thinking about the author’s reflections on the scriptures’ meaning, and using the prayer suggestion to talk to God about the day’s message. Each day, I am amazing by a new awareness of how the Bible can guide our thoughts and our actions. Most days, I feel that the words are speaking directly to situations in my life and giving me guidance and encouragement. I appreciate Shanna’s commitment to helping us grow in our faith and giving us the tools we need to begin that journey.
