Lenten Spiritual Directions Day of Prayer
Sunday, March 15| $50
Jesus instructs us to eschew judgement. But how do we do that? Jesus commands us to love one another. But how do we do that? We all seek peace in our life. But how do we attain that? We all seek joy. But how do we accomplish that? The Spiritual Directions not only answer each of those questions, but is a scripture-based practice for living a life of peace and joy, based in love, and without judgement.
In the Franciscan tradition, this outdoor day of prayer and meditation, of learning and discovery in creation, explores: What is the great commandment? and How should we pray? “Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength.” (Deuteronomy) “You must love your neighbor as yourself.” (Leviticus).
Each participant receives a meditation booklet containing both the reflections and their Bible references.
This day of guided prayer and meditation is in the outdoors on the grounds of Graymoor during Lent – the preparation season for Easter. Mid-March weather – near the vernal equinox – can vary, so please bring warm apparel and raingear if necessary. The program runs from 9:30am – 3:30 pm. The cost of $50 per person.
Presenter: Skip Doyle. For a decade at Graymoor, Skip Doyle, in Franciscan fashion, has led nature retreats with a scripture-based spiritual component he has branded as Re-Creation weekends combining our lives in the natural world with our spiritual lives.
