Days of Deepening Friendship: A Lenten Retreat
As we did last year, we will again be hosting a Lenten Retreat on the Days of Deepening Friendship blog. This retreat will give us a chance to reflect on our daily lives and to prepare prayerfully for Holy Week and Easter. It is my hope that throughout the weeks of Lent, this retreat will provide you with an opportunity for spiritual renewal as you participate in the reflections and exercises. The retreat materials this year will be drawn from The World as It Should Be: Living Authentically in the Here-and-Now Kingdom of God by Gregory F.A. Pierce. This book gives us a fresh perspective on our role in bringing about the kingdom of God, and we will be exploring this theme especially as it relates to the Lenten practices of prayer, fasting, and almsgiving.
Each week’s reflection is drawn from a chapter of The World as It Should Be and these chapters will be accessible on the blog. However, if you would like to get a head start on your reading or read the book in its entirety, you can take advantage of a special price (only $10) when you order now, and use discount code DDFLENT.
Part of a retreat is forming a community, and I look forward to sharing this experience with you.
