Community Encounters Lent
A small and wonderful group has been gathering on Wednesday evening for a Lenten exploration of faith through Richard Rohr’s Wondrous Encounters. I have found not only the scripture and essays offered each day, but the sharing between our all too human selves, enriching to my spiritual life. It is illuminating to hear the comments offered by my fellow classmates, as well as their questions. My inner dialogue is often “What an amazing insight! Why didn’t I see that?”
This fascinating book with scriptures and prayers through the days of Lent provides me a starter step each morning of this most sacred season. The coming week leads us into Holy Week and the remembrance of Jesus’ sacrifice. Wondrous Encounters reminds me again how grateful I am to share my journey with our Community of faith.
