Boundless Compassion Prayer Stations
Come explore Lenten Prayer stations centered around the theme of Compassion. Various prayer activities around the Chapel explore compassion as a way of life, compassion for self, the suffering, the marginalized and the earth as through the lens of Jesus’ ministry and his journey to the cross.
What is your desire for Lent this year?
During Lent 2019 we will examine the compassionate love of God and the choices Jesus made on the way to the Cross. At each step on his journey to the Cross, Jesus took the time to be compassionate. As we walk with Jesus to the cross, we will come to understand that Jesus still remains compassionate to us. This is what we all seek to understand at the deepest level of our soul. In understanding God's boundless compassion for us we seek to know that we are worthy enough to love. Modeling Christ's compassion is an essential component of our spiritual transformation. As we learn to follow Christ's example of self-compassion, compassion for the suffering, the marginalized, creation, we begin to embrace compassion as a way of life. Because Lent is a time of greater reflection and prayer, it is a chance to be open to the opportunity of being a compassionate presence to others as we reflect on Christ's compassion for us. We pray that Lent will be a time in which you will hear God’s call to be more fully understood and to grow your ability to be compassionate within your heart so that you can share compassion with the world.
You are invited to journey with others in your Sheridan family in one or all of these opportunities.
