Lenton Series: What is Truth?: An Embodied Lenten Experience
In person in the Great Hall on Wednesdays starting March 9, 6:00-8:00 pm
Virtually via Zoom on Sundays starting March 6, 4:30–6:30pm
We were invited on Ash Wednesday "in the name of the Church, to the observance of a holy Lent by self-examination and repentance. "What is Truth?" offers us an opportunity to take that invitation seriously. The series specifically provides a way to take the risk of listening, sharing, and learning in an environment that is welcoming and modeled on the Christian principle of love.
The Episcopal Diocese of Massachusetts is asking all its communities of faith to consider how to repent of, reconcile with, and repair harm done by the dehumanizing Transatlantic Slave Trade. Saint Barnabas's and the diocese want to hear your truth or what you would like your truth to be in terms of addressing racism in the Church and society today. Each session of "What is Truth?" will be facilitated by lay leaders at Saint Barnabas's who will use poetry, music, prose, spiritual exercises, and other tools to help attendees individually and collectively discern our path forward on these critical concerns.
The topics, dates, and times for the six sessions are (click on each highlighted session for session materials):
Session 1: Telling the Truth

Session 3: Rooting in Relationship
