Lenten Series
Join Don McLeod at The Wisdom Center for 5 evening online sessions during Lent to reconnect and reimagine what it might mean to be fully alive... human beings being human. Through music and poetry, images and insights from wisdom texts (ancient and contemporary), we will explore together ways of responding to what poet Diane Ackerman describes as, "our yearning to find whole-ness as holiness, and at-one-ment as atonement, filling a need ancient and essential as air." Wednesday Evenings, February 24 to March 24, 2021, 7:00 to 8:30pm. For more information, see here. To register and receive the Zoom information please email Kelly Kawohl.
