Lenten Quiet Day
Saturday, March 2
St. Mark's Episcopal Church
There is a particular spirituality that emerges from desert terrain. No place is this more obvious than the wisdom of the early church desert mothers and fathers who chose a life of austerity as a way of growing in closeness to God. Take some time out of your busy schedule to engage with their witness as part of your own Lenten observances. There will be time for silent reflection, sharing, nourishing food, and the fellowship we find with one another. Give yourself the gift of this time.
Reflecting Christ, Enacting Our Faith - Small Group Gatherings 2019
Hear from Beth about trends in faith communities. What are people saying about church and what they are seeking from a faith community? What is St. Mark's identity? Where do we fit into the broader fabric of the city?
Reflect together on how our Core Vocation, Feeding San Antonio with the Bread of Life, informs our vision for the future of St. Mark's. Four years ago was the last time we engaged in this parish-wide conversation. The themes that emerged have directed our energies toward more time together as a community, the addition of a third clergy person, and addressing our remaining renovation debt. So now we ask, "Where do we go from here?"
Get to know each other. Meeting in these small group settings will allow us to deepen our relationships with other members. We hope that these conversations will encourage members to share our stories with each other, and give us a chance to learn from and be inspired by one another.
