Lent Quiet Morning
Saturday, March 9 at 9:00 am – 12:00 pm
Being & Beauty & Love
Beginning with Holy Eucharist, this quiet morning offers ample opportunity for silence and stillness. Three short meditations on the morning’s theme will be
offered by noted writer and Christ Church member, Lynn Martin, from the roots of early Christian mysticism with readings from Hilary of Poitiers; Gregory Nazianzen; Dionysius the Areopagite; Gregory the Great; Gregory of Nyssa; St. Benedict of Nursia; Augustine of Hippo . . . along with poems from 20th century American poet Mary Oliver. Each meditation is followed by time to pray, meditate, write, walk, or rest.
Quiet spaces include the Chapel, Library, and Church
