Gifts of the Dark Wood

a worship series for the Season of Lent

9 am & 11 am // 509 Forest Avenue, Portland

Our Lenten worship series is based on Eric Elnes' book, Gifts of the Dark Wood: Seven Blessings for Soulful Skeptics (and Other Wanderers) — an invitation to find the fierce beauty and astonishing blessing that exists within experinces that most of us fear but none of us can avoid — experiences like uncertainty, emptiness, being thunderstruck, getting lost, and temptation.

Lent is a season of 40 days (plus six Sundays!) for intentional self-reflection and recommitment — an opportunity for taking inventory of our lives, as preparation for Holy Week and Easter.

Invite a friend to join you this Sunday!
