Our Lenten Contemplation
This year for our Lenten contemplation, we will be viewing a video series called Journey Toward Forgiveness: From rage to reconciliation. Each week we will view and discuss various stories such as: A Bigger Victim than myself (about the Oklahoma bombing); An Enemy worse than death (about the abduction & murder of a 13 year old); Hospice Helps; Turning Hate into Hope; Forgive, but Remember (from a Cheyenne PeaceChief); and I'll Give you the Getting (about cancer.) We will gather on Tuesdays at 12 noon & 7 pm in the Undercroft/Basement for viewing of the video and then discussion. Come when you are able.
