Wednesdays at First

Lent with the Saint John's Bible led by Rev. Craig Goodrich and Rev. Rex Childs.


Sacred Habits

Wednesdays at 1 p.m. during Lent
March 1, 8, 15, 22, 29, April 5

You are invited to join us this Lent as we engage in the contemplative practice of Viseo Divina (divine seeing) on the art of Vincent van Gogh.

The word “Lent” refers to the “lengthening” light, the growing days that, in time, will coax the sunflowers to open, the wheat fields to rise again, and the irises to bloom. What better companion on this forty-day pilgrimage, then the art of Van Gogh?

In our Lenten devotional by SALT, the words of Scripture and the paintings and letters of Vincent van Gogh will be our guides. Each week, biblical texts and Van Gogh’s work throw light on each other, pointing toward simple, powerful practices we will engage in together.

So grab your favorite Bible and we’ll travel this Lenten journey together toward the light of Easter morning – with Vincent van Gogh as our guide. If you are attending the Lenten Organ Concerts, we invite you to bring your lunch to enjoy before Sacred Habits in the Youth Room. Contact Nancy Van Fleet for more information.
