Finding your Life: Listening Deeply

A contemplative worship service with prayer, quiet music, scripture and imposition of ashes in the First Church Sanctuary.

“…repent and believe in the Good News.” – Luke 1: 9-15
As we prepare for our 40-day journey of Lent, we “turn around” (the root meaning of the word “repent”) from the distractions of daily noise and focus our attention on listening in a deeper way. Writer Parker Palmer suggests we must listen “to what our life is telling us” — in other words, to listen to the deep wisdom God gave to us as a birthright, connecting to God’s purpose once again.
