Racial Reconciliation: Join us for a conversation as we discuss Bryan Stevenson’s Just Mercy and explore themes of mercy, justice and race and faith this Lenten season. Led by the Rev. Sarah Carver, Roe Library. March 1–29

A Pilgrimage in Purple: “I think it ticks God off if you walk by the color purple in a field somewhere and don’t notice it.” Alice Walker, from The Color Purple. Lent is a special season of the church year which invites us to go on a journey much like a pilgrimage. The pilgrimage experience invites us to move out of our comfort zones, increase our focus on attention and listening to the voice of God and the world around us; and to enjoy encounters that shake us out of the status quo. This Lent we will offer a variety of formation classes and experiences which will engage and enrich our lives as Christians and encourage us to see the richness of the deep purple days of Lent. Themes for each week: The Preparation and Departure, March 8; The Journey, the Encounter(s), March 15; The Arrival, March 22 ; The Coming Home, March 29. The March 1 class is canceled. Led by the Rev. Canon Patricia Grace and other leaders, Haywood Duke.
