Nativity Episcopal Lent Retreat

March 7, 2020 Nativity Episcopal Church, Burnsville

From the earliest days of Christianity, traditions have arisen for observing Lent, our annual retreat. How do prayer, fasting, and almsgiving speak to Christians in 2020? We will spend some time looking at history, our own experiences, and scripture. Another theme will be stories of forgiveness. Our retreat day will take place at Nativity Episcopal Church in Burnsville and will include time for group or individual prayer, silence, small group sharing, communing with nature, poetry, and input from Michael Summerfield. Join us on Saturday, March 7, 2020 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Lunch is included. There will be a free-will offering. Please RSVP to
