Wednesday Evening Lent Program -- "Life Transitions: Living in the New Normal"
Greek Philosopher, Heraclitus, is quoted as saying, “Change is the only constant in life.” Change is fused with time and, as the saying goes, “time and tide wait for no man.” Like it or not, change happens every moment of every day. Because of the inevitability of change we are always in transition at every age in our lives. But different periods of time present different challenges and different experiences of transition. Considering the community in which we live and the issues we face living this latter period of life, it seemed an apt topic for our Lenten program this year. Our speakers will talk about transition from several viewpoints and enrich our understanding of how we can best meet the challenges of transition as we try to live in what may be call “the new normal.”
We begin each evening at 5 pm in the courtyard with a thoughtful, prayerful experience of the Stations of the Cross, each led by a different group in the church. (Note that on April 10 the Stations with music and choir will be held in the Church at 4:15 pm.) At 5:30 pm we gather in the Parish Hall for a simple meal of salad, soup, bread and conversation as we bond in lively conversation. Tickets for the supper are $6 and must be reserved at least 3 days in advance. At 6:15 pm, a speaker will share their topic for 30 - 45 minutes followed by an opportunity for questions.
