Our 2017 Lenten Meditations are focused on the theme of discovery, a theme that has served us well during this 2016-17 program year at Christ Church Greenwich. Discovery is also a foundation of the life and pathway of faith. Through faith we discover God, and in that discovery we find hope, peace and love.
In previous years, Christ Church Lenten Meditation Guides have invited us to encounter Scripture through the Gospels in a sequence of years and through two previous themes, compassion and generosity. This year’s Scripture tells a story of events and people from the perspective of what it means to find God and God’s presence. The meditations themselves are written by clergy, staff, and other Christ Church leaders who are sharing their faith and sense of discovery.
We hope that this will be a Lent of renewal and transformation for you. And… we hope that this will be a season of discovering for you as well, a time during which you find God in a new way and discover some things about your own self and journey in life and faith.
