Each Lent we have a series of Tuesday night gatherings that begin with Centering Prayer at 6:30. This year we’ll be praying in Ripley Chapel. Then we’ll adjourn to the Tucker Room for a simple supper of soup and bread. This year we will adopt the practice that many monasteries use. One voice will read while everyone enjoys the soup and the calm that comes from listening. We will take some time at the end of the evening’s reading to share some thoughts. We will be reading On the Brink of Just About Everything: Grace, Gravity and Getting Old by Parker Palmer. Our plan is to complete the book by Holy Week. We plan to conclude each Tuesday by 8:00 p.m.
