Sleepers Awake! A Lenten series

St. George's Church
In-person and online
Rev. Drs. Jim Jones & Kathleen Bishop,
Spiritual awakening is a term often used to describe a new appreciation for our innate connection to the divine. It can also refer to a state of being that is alert, vigilant and mindful vs. the dormancy of “auto-pilot.”
In this 5-week series we will teach the basics of mindfulness meditation for those just beginning or for those who wish to bring fresh eyes and ears to the familiar rhythms of Lent and Easter through contemplative practice. Each week will build on the last to offer a step-by-step method for establishing a meditation practice, even for those who say, “I can’t meditate.”
Midway through the series we will offer a Lenten Quiet Day as an opportunity to put the teachings into practice. Throughout the course, participants will be encouraged to embrace the Lenten season as a time to ‘go deep” into contemplative prayer using the tools of mindful awareness we will learn and share together.
We hope you will consider joining us!
