Lenten Day of Quiet

Date: March 7, 2015
Time: 11–5 pm
Location: Christie House and Chapel

When we commit to a quiet time with God, the stress and busyness of regular life falls away. The deeper, more peaceful parts of ourselves emerge and in that stillness, we feel more in touch with the Divine. In Lent, quiet time is especially precious as we ponder the deeper meaning of Jesus’ sacrifice and shine light in our dark corners. It’s also wonderful to do a day of silence in community. By honoring each other’s response to the call to silence, a new connection often emerges.

On March 7, much of the Epiphany campus will be devoted to silence.
