Resources for Lent 2016

ON the WEB

Growing a Rule of Life, with SSJE, the Society of Saint John the Evangelist.

This year the Brothers' Lenten series will focus on God as the Chief Gardener of our souls and use a tool from monastic spirituality called a 'Rule of Life' to explore and cultivate our relationships with God, Self, Others, and Creation. Just as stakes and lattices nurture the growth of young plants, so too can spiritual disciplines support the flourishing of our whole being. Join us to dig deep and dream big about ways to live into a more abundant life with Christ. Begins Ash Wednesday: February 10, 2016.

We will be Growing a Rule of Life together across the Diocese of Long Island.
