May God provide everything you need for your Lenten journey. One possibility is some beautiful photography and wonderful words on gratitude in tonight's Lenten series!
  
Much love in Jesus,

 LENTEN PROGRAM

Via (Multi) Media

Viewing Spirituality through the Lens of the Arts

 


As Anglicans, we celebrate "Via Media" which means "the middle way". As Emmanuelites we will be celebrating "Via (Multi) Media" which means we'll have a great time hearing about the spiritual adventures of several members of our congregation mediated through books, film, and music. 

 

Lyn Crow

This week Mo. Lyn will share a brief but beautiful video on gratitude. 

Nature's beauty can be easily missed -- but not through Louie Schwartzberg's lens. His stunning time-lapse photography, accompanied by powerful words from Benedictine monk Brother David Steindl-Rast, serves as a meditation on being grateful for every day. Mo Lyn has some special handouts for attendees which include quotes from Steindl-Rast and ideas for our growth in gratitude.

  

Here is the remaining schedule: 

Feb 28   TED talk on Gratitude - Mo. Lyn

Mar 7    "Proof of Heaven" - Paul Dobies
Mar 14   "I AM" DVD - Fr. Rob & Mo. Lyn
Mar 21   Music that Made a Difference - Jen Wagner  

 

Each of these sessions will be on Thursdays during Lent from 7:30 until 8:30pm. We will begin with a time of worship, hear a half hour presentation on the topic, and then have some time to share our own experiences and thoughts. This will be an awesome way to grow spiritually, develop friendships, and find more about love, gratitude, and transformation.

Where's Charlie?

 

Here is a photo taken by Bev Simmons of an Edmonds family adventure picking a bumper crop of her lemons.

If you look closely you can see a battle scarred Charlie in the tree. Bev shared the fruits of their labors at coffee hour last Sunday. Many thanks to Andrew, Jake, Joe and Charlie!
