This retreat is facilitated by Rev. Margaret Bullitt-Jonas, Missioner for Creation Care for the SNEUCC and the Western Diocese of the Episcopal Church.

Lent invites us to look deeply into our lives and into the society in which we participate. How is God stretching us to live at our best? How is God calling us to wake up from our dull habits of thought and behavior and to see clearly where love urges us to change? 

Many people dread (and avoid) the traditional Lenten practices of self-examination and repentance because we fear that these practices will drag us into harsh self-criticism and self-attack. This retreat will encourage us to question our kneejerk self-judgment and instead to open ourselves to the healing judgment of a loving God who sees our preciousness and seeks our wholeness.
Through silence, guided meditation, personal reflection, and small group sharing we aim to create a space in which we can grow in self-awareness, self-acceptance, and compassion for ourselves, each other, and our wounded, magnificent world. Participants are asked bring a candle, Bible, paper/pen for journaling, art supplies (if you have some), and comfortable clothes for an optional walk outside. This is a virtual event. To register, visit here.
This retreat is sponsored by the Southern New England Conference UCC and both Episcopal dioceses of Massachusetts.
