Follow Jesus  Looking for another way to live Lent? “Exploring a Lenten Desert” is a six-session course that introduces participants to the desert as an image of spiritual dryness and refreshment and to the tradition of contemplative prayer that emerged from the practices of a fascinating group of 4th century men and women who fled the cities to seek closer relationship with God in the Egyptian desert.  We will explore their pithy and paradoxical wisdom as we learn about (and practice) a variety of forms of contemplative prayer, including using psalms as prayer, awareness reflection, Ignatian imaginative prayer, centering prayer, lectio divina, and shared silence. If you’ve never heard of these, it’s ok—that’s part of the exploration!

The Bible Study will take place on Mondays through Lent, starting on 23 February 2015 from 7 to 9 p.m. at the Church of the Epiphany, Sudbury.
