During this “Growing Season” we will be exploring ancient disciplines in a new way and opening fresh discussions about some of the foundational questions of faith. Who is God? What is salvation? How do we go about being church? Each week during Lent, in this space, we will pose questions and offer ideas to contemplate regarding some basic theological concepts. We will follow this up with a suggested spiritual practice: an action item for Lenten observance and spiritual growth. We hope you find these promptings useful and that you can find your way to participate, so that God’s Reign might grow throughout the earth. To that end, all thoughts are welcome. May we respect one another. May we create a place hospitable to honest feelings, the free exchange of thought, and civil discourse. May we love and forgive one another and seek in all things to be people full of grace.
