Our Lenten study program this year will focus on the theme “You are the light of the world.” Each Wednesday evening in Lent our speaker(s) will talk about where in this world they see people revealing the light which is from God.

Dean Bill Ellis will lead off the series on March 8. On March 15, our own Dr. Linda Hunt, and Rabbi Tamar Malino of Temple Beth Israel will offer the program. On March 22, we will hear from Marti D’ Agostino of Daybreak Youth Services, a treatment center for adolescent victims of chemical dependency. On March 29, we will hear from some members of our youth group, and on April 5, the Rev. Woody Garvin will make his presentation.

The format for each week will be the same: 30-40 minutes of content from our presenters and then some time for questions and conversation with the whole group. Make these evenings a part of your Lent; it will give us all the opportunity to see how true it is that “once in a while you get shown the light in the strangest of places if you look at it right.”

As always we will offer the Eucharist and a soup, salad and bread supper prior to these presentations. The schedule is:
5:30pm Eucharist
6:15pm Soup Supper
7pm-8pm Program
Childcare provided

Ask a Buddhist: Can Buddhism Cure Anxiety?

In a word, yes. Anxiety and other mental health issues can be overcome through studying, practicing and integrating the various methods found in Buddhist teachings, such as meditation. But for people with anxiety disorders, not a temporary worry or fear, Buddhist teachings and meditation are better used as an adjunct to other therapies and treatments recommended by qualified professionals.
