Reflections From the Dean
Awakening to Witness
Daily Reflections From Ash Wednesday to Easter

It may be that when we no longer know what to do,
we have come to our real work,
and when we no longer know which way to go,
we have come to our real journey.  

The mind that is not baffled is not employed.
The impeded stream is the one that sings.

Wendell Berry, ” The Real Work”

We invite you to use this booklet of daily reflections by a diverse group of theologians, lay and clergy from across the Anglican Communion.

Godly Play – The Children’s Gathering on the Square

Sundays, 9:00 – 10:00 am

The Loft at St. Peter’s Church   

The program takes place in The Loft at the back of St. Peter’s Church, from 9:00 to 10:00 am on Sunday mornings.  It is appropriate for children who are curious about the bible stories that they hear in church, enrolled in pre-school through the 4th grade of school.  Older children are welcome to assist as “helpers” or participate in “The ROCK” (Relationships, Outreach, Christ & Kids) program located in the Sun/Son room at St. Peter’s.

March 1.  The Faces of Easter  I & II.  Today we will hear the first two stories in our seven-story series, called “The Faces of Easter.”  We will remember Jesus’ life and ministry through the Sundays of Godly Play in Lent.  The first story tells of the birth of a baby, born to be a king, but not the kind of king that people were expecting.  This king was called “The Word” and was born a wordless child.  The second story will remember how very human and how very divine Jesus was when he was a boy.  In this story from Luke, Jesus stayed in Jerusalem after a Passover pilgrimage with his parents and went to the Temple to study with the priests there.  Jesus’ parents were understandably upset.  Jesus answered, “Why were you worried?  Didn’t you know I would be in my Father’s house?” We wondered about these stories together by bringing pieces of other Godly Play stories that we think are important to “help tell the story.”  You might like to ask your child what they brought to the story today and why.

March 8.  The faces of Easter III & IV.  We are all on the journey toward the greatest Christian mystery which we know as Easter.  In Godly Play, we spend the six weeks of Lent revisiting pivotal moments in the life of Jesus and his journey to the cross and beyond.  We add a little more to the story each week.  Today we hear again the stories of the miracle of Jesus’ birth in Bethlehem and his boyhood adventure in the Temple.  We take the story two steps further and learn of his baptism in the Jordan River by his cousin, John the Baptist, and join him as he spent 40 days in the desert wilderness and the temptations he was subject to there.


Opening the Prayer Book -

Opening the Prayer Book:  (Jan 18th – Mar 15th)

Join us for the next several weeks as Walter and Susan facilitate a discussion on Episcopalians being “People of the Prayer Book.”  It will be practical, offering tips on how to find your way around the Book of Common Prayer (BCP), but also ripe with why we do – what we do!  You’re encouraged to bring your own  Book of Common Prayer if you have one. (We will also have copies to borrow.)  Even if you missed earlier sessions, you are welcome to join us at any time.

Mar 1st:  Living a life of wholeness and health.
Susan facilitates discussion on the highlights Westerhoff’s chapter on wholeness and health.  A chance to be encouraged in living healthy – with sharing time for practical suggestions on a healthy lifestyle.  How do our Lenten disciplines serve as long-term invitations to restraint and healthy added practices to our normal lives, beyond Lent?
Our weekly conversations will refer to John Westerhoff’s book, Living Faithfully as a Prayer Book People.  For those who want to purchase a book, we will have them there for $10.
