Lent Formation Opportunities

The Church of the Epiphany is offering three engaging formation opportunities this Lent:

Lenten Lab: Experiments in Epiphany
Join us this Lent as we experiment in the way of Jesus. Each weekday morning in Lent a new experiment will be posted through our Facebook page (facebook.com/EpiphanyDC) and Twitter feed (@EpiphanyDC) or delivered straight to your email inbox (sign up here).  These experiments will lead us to try out new ways of prayer, loving our neighbors, and seeing God in the everyday. At the end of each week we will have a “Friday Fifteen”: a 15 minute conference call that will include a short meditation and time to share your ongoing experiences with the Lenten Lab. The call will be held each Friday in Lent at 12:15 PM ET via conference call (Phone #: 712.775.7031; Conference ID: 363-056-320).
For questions, contact Epiphany seminarian Ragan Sutterfield at rsutterfield@vts.edu.

Feb. 22-Mar. 22, Sundays in Lent
The Episcopal Way, 12:45- 1:45 pm
Denominational affiliation is becoming less and less a factor in church participation. Still, however, it is critical to be informed about the basic principals of The Episcopal Church, because they are the structure and framework of our church life. Eric Law and Stephanie Spellers wrote The Episcopal Way as Volume 1 of the Church’s Teachings for a Changing World. Law and Spellers’ work brings a fresh and new perspective to the meaning of Episcopalian.  Their book, which is available at Epiphany for $10 or on Amazon, will be the conversation starter for Sunday sessions in the Willard Room.

Feb. 25-Mar. 25, Wednesdays in Lent
St. Francis and the Sultan, 6:00- 7:00 pm
This is a quote from the Preface of St. Francis and the Sultan: “We all, Muslims and non-Muslims alike, have a choice. Either we allow our fears to bear us along towards what could eventually become a war of apocalyptic dimensions. Or we can rouse ourselves from our fearful obsessions and search for ways not only to reverse this negative trend but also, and most importantly, to focus the world s energies on achieving peace and human flourishing.” Conversations about Muslims and Christians working together for peace will be held in the church.
