Quench – An Email Retreat for Lent 2015
There is something about Lent that invites us to carve time into busy lives.
In that space we sometimes take up a practice, bringing more balance to our lives.
Or we give something up, seeking simplicity or giving space to our deepest desires.
In this Email retreat, Quench, will offer creative support to your Lent journey.
We begin with Thirst.
We’ll end with Quench.
In the weeks between
we’ll pay attention to what thirst is awakening,
try practices that bring more intention to our everyday lives,
and listen for invitations that open us, and ready us,
for the joy and mystery of Easter.
You will receive:
- Six weekly email retreats beginning Saturday, February 21st. You retreat at your own time, in your own space.
- Access to a private Facebook page where you can share reflections, pictures, and comments, if you wish.
- A copy of the retreat to download and print so you can retreat away from your computer.
- Any support you need to make sure you can receive the emails and participate on our Facebook page.
Each email will offer:
- a getting ready practice,
- a reflection using words, and sometimes photos, music, audio guided meditations, or art,
- evocative questions for meditation or journalling,
- suggestions for spiritual practices you can try during the week,
- and a blessing prayer or affirmation.
New this year will be a weekly focus question inviting you to share comments, questions, photos, art with others sharing the retreat in a private Facebook page. Some will choose to participate actively, others will look in and learn. All are welcome.
Leader: Janice MacLean, host of Prayer Bench, with a little help from her friends.
