Join me for a unique Lent series ... starting March 2nd!
I'll be writing a brand new series, day-by-day through Lent - so you get a fresh burst each week-day morning (33 in total), and you, me and anyone else who's signed up begins a journey together, sharing wisdom and encouraging each other along the way.
It won't take too long to read each daily reflection - but they will take you to a deeper and richer place as you go.
Simple prompts for contemplative practice
I'll also offer daily suggestions to help embed the material with simple contemplative practice or practical application, and to explore themes further with creative ideas, links, book references, etc when appropriate.
Weekly YouTube Live 'Gathering'
Each week on Fridays through Lent, I'll also provide a short guided session live on YouTube so that we can gather together, and gather up the week's reflections!
Your own RSVP responses make it a communal experience
There's a chance to report back once a week through the popular RSVP section (if you want to - though there's no pressure!). Share links, poems, observations when invited - so that the wisdom of the group is reflected, and we help to shape the series together!
Throughout, we'll maintain an intimate one-to-one feel - yet the shared wisdom of the group as a whole creates an experience which is greater than the sum of its parts.
This year's theme
I want the series to be as uplifting and encouraging as we can make it, while holding with loving care the sense of sorrow and suffering that so many are continuing to experience.
Lent is a season in which we (here in the northern hemisphere!) watch for the days lengthening, and welcome the lighter, warmer days to come. It's like an awakening from hibernation, a throwing open the curtains, to let the warmth and light of God's love reach deep into the soul.
As we go, we'll be touching on traditional Lenten themes too, and reflecting on Jesus' own time in the wilderness during his 40 days of fasting and prayer.
It remains £20 for individuals, or £80 for small groups - though please feel free to pay less - or nothing at all if you're struggling financially.
If you'd like more info on groups, click here. (Or do drop me a line if you'd like your organisation or church to participate as a whole.)
