For our Lenten Quiet Morning, we will continue our participation in the “Heartbeat of the Church”. This is a program designed by The Anglican Church of Canada, in advance of our national General Synod. From the website: “the Primate is calling all of us – coast to coast – to come together, form Conversation Circles, and join in 10 months of dialogue, prayer and reflection. Most of the morning will be spent in small group conversation and reflection, concluding with the Holy Eucharist. If you took part in this program over Advent, you are welcome and encouraged to attend again, as you may be talking through it with others, giving new perspectives. Towards the end, the small groups will each compose a prayer for the Church. All are welcome.
