Practices of Releasing
“For all that has been, thanks. For all that will be, yes. “
These words from the writings of Dag Hammarskjold offer perspective and direction as we enter Lent.
Join Janice MacLean and wise friends as they explore original goodness and name the practices that release us from fear, grief, sense of scarcity, violence, and patterns that harden our heart and tarnish the goodness that is always staring back at us.
Using metaphors from the Lent gospel readings, stories, poetry, art and music we rub away at all that limits the human spirit, and dulls the life of our congregations and groups, and suggest authentic spiritual practices to claim again original goodness.
Leaders: Janice Maclean host of The Prayer Bench, and a minister of The United Church of Canada. Janice will interview wise friends who offer reflections from their life experience.

- Six 8-10 minute audio recordings;
