A Contemplative Lenten Retreat

March 4 @ 9:30 am 11:30 am

The word “Lent” is related to Latin cognates meaning long and slow (“lente,” “lento”). Like Advent, Lent is a speed bump in the church year, inviting us into reflection, confession, and prayer as we approach Holy Week and Easter; a time when we remember the profound costliness of God’s abundant love for us.

We enter the retreat this year following a long year of seeking God’s Light in the darkness of the ongoing pandemic, war on other shores, political elections, and social turmoil. Join us for a morning of contemplating God’s great love for us and our aching world.

Co-sponsored by New College Berkeley and First Presbyterian Church of Berkeley, led by Susan Phillips, PhD. Register here. For more information contact [email protected]
