journaling“Journaling Your Journey to God” will be the focus of two quiet days to be held this year on Saturdays, March 8 and 15. The Rev. Doris Westfall will lead both sessions.

Women of Grace’s annual Lenten Quiet Day will be held on Saturday, March 8 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. A soup and bread lunch will be served. There is no charge but you do need to sign up in Albright Parish Hall to indicate your intention to attend.

If you wish to just “drop in” for a short time, please feel free to do so. Friends, spouses and other family members are welcome. Women from St. Timothy’s Episcopal Church in Creve Coeur have been invited to join us as well.

The women of St. Timothy’s will sponsor their quiet day on the following Saturday, March 15 from 8 a.m. to noon. All Grace folks are invited.

Mo. Doris says each day will be based on and take exercises from the book “Spiritual Journaling: Recording Your Journey to God,” by Richard Pearce. Each day will have two sessions breaking into three parts: a short meditation and sharing of a journal entry written by a historical figure like St. Augustine, St. Teresa of Avila or one of the Wesley brothers. There will be time for each person to do a journaling exercise of his/her own and a coming together in a larger group to share the experience. Different journaling methods and reflections will be examined as a way of deepening our spiritual journey. Content of the two sessions will differ with day one focusing on the past and day two on the
future.

Please bring a notebook and a pen or pencil for the journaling exercises.
