Adult Formation: Lent in a Pandemic: Haven’t we Suffered Enough?
at 7 pm via Zoom led by The Rev. Charles Lane Cowen

Join Charles on Zoom on Wednesday, February 24th at 7 pm for a discussion of what it means to keep a holy Lent during a pandemic. Yes, Lent is a time for penance, repentance, and self-denial, and those practices can be life-giving and holy, even in a pandemic. We will study a history of Lent, look at Lenten practices, and discuss what we have learned about God and ourselves over the past year of living through the Coronavirus Pandemic.
