Faith Practices for Lent 2020

ORUCC has scheduled spiritual opportunities this Lenten season.  We would love for you to join us!

March 4 & 25—Walking Meditation, 5:30 pm-7:30 pm.  Two opportunities  to walk the Labyrinth in Friendship Hall during this Lenten season.  It is a time that provides for quiet reflection and calm, finding a pace that is right for you.  We invite you to set aside 20 minutes to quietly walk this spiritual path amidst candlelight and soft music.  A member of the Labyrinth Team will be there to explain how to enter into this simple walking meditation.

March 11—No program this week.  This might be a week to use Lenten devotional booklet , find a friend or family member and share a favorite poem, reflection, or story of Lent.

March 18—Multisensory Meditations, 5:30 pm-7:30 pm.  Jesus’ early disciples were called people of “the way.”  Our life of faith calls us to ways of living, being, and interacting with the world, with people, with creation.  Drop in between 5:30-7:30 and explore a variety of hands-on prayer stations and reflect on the life that Jesus calls us to as his followers in our world today.

April 1—Naam Yoga Practice, 6:00 pm-7:00 pm.  Naam Yoga uses breath, movement and sound to heal and align the body, the mind and the nervous system for optimal health, and to encourage a higher form of mental, physical and spiritual self-awareness and personal development.  It is a discipline that combines the ancient spiritual wisdom of eastern yoga and meditation with western science.  Dress comfortably and bring a yoga mat and cushion to sit on if you have them.  A limited number of mats and cushions will be available to use.  You can also easily participate while seated in a chair.  This session is free and will be taught by Jane Mirshak who is part of the therapeutic massage and bodywork team at Why Knot Massage in Middleton.

April 8—Exploring the Art of Illuminations as a Way of Entering Scripture Texts, 6:00 pm-7:00 pm.  Dr. D.
