WITH DR. CHRISTOPHER SEITZ
“To everything there is a season, and a time for every purpose under heaven.”
Laity and clergy have a special opportunity to meet weekly to read through and discuss this provocative work. In Jewish tradition, it has been read at the Feast of Booths – probably because of its combination of acknowledging life’s quick passing and our transitory existence, but also the need to take time to enjoy God’s blessings. This makes it a suitable book for our Lenten meditation as well.
Ecclesiastes meets Wednesdays in Lent from 11:45am-1pm. The dates are Mar. 12, 19, 26, Apr. 2, and 9. This event is for everyone, clergy and laity. It will be a brown bag lunch (or we'll supply food and ask for a donation of $10).
Start Time: 11:45 am
End Time: 1:00 pm
Date: March 12, 2014

The theme and text for each year's observance of the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity are chosen and prepared by representatives of the World Council of Churches and the Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity.
The Judicatory leaders representing many of our local Christian denominations will lead this service. This year the ecumenical communities would like to include prayers for the persecuted Christians in the world. It is estimated that there are more than 200 million Christians in the world today who do not have full human rights as defined by the UN Declaration of Human Rights, simply because they are Christians. Christians in the Middle East are particularly vulnerable, those living in Egypt, Iran, Iraq, Syria and Turkey.
