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.

You will receive:

  • Six 8-10 minute audio recordings;
  • A Leaders Page outlining a one-hour group process with opening, centering, discussion questions, group spiritual practice and closing prayer;
  • A written script of the audio talks (where possible);
  • A Participants page;
  • Supplemental Resources.

When you register for this Small Group Study you will receive a link and password to an Access Page where the materials are available for downloading. An Internet connection is needed to access the audio recordings but once downloaded they are available to play from your computer. Once downloaded no internet connection is required.

The cost of this Small Group package is $29. Sale Price for Lent 2016 is $25.

    This is an excellent study. It is well put together with lots of great questions to promote discussion. There is minimal preparation for the leader. It was perfect for Lent with the focus on releasing/giving up things that can prevent closeness with God..
