Ben White hosts our annual review of the Old Testament in the Bible. It will have enough stimulation for people who have some knowledge already, but is especially designed for people who need to get the basics down. The day is designed to have the feeling of a retreat, not just a class. Free! But you must sign up by February 11 to come. $5 donation for simple lunch if you don’t bring your own.


February 22:
Approaching Spiritual Doom – MLK and America’s War Addiction

5:00pm-9:00pm
2007 Frankford Ave.
Philadelphia, PA 19125

Facebook

In his speech ‘Beyond Vietnam: A Time to Break Silence’, Martin Luther King Jr. prophetically declared that “A nation that continues year after year to spend more money on military defense than on programs of social uplift is approaching spiritual doom.” Fifty-three years later, funding for America’s war machine dwarfs spending on any other single dept. and its entitlement to these resources is largely unquestioned.

We will be exploring these questions by remembering and meditating on the prophetic tradition handed down to us by those who fought for peace. A presentation of the speech “Beyond Vietnam: A time to break Silence” will be followed by a brief discussion and an opportunity to educate ourselves further on the current state of the USA’s military spending. Refreshments will be provided.


February 26:
Ash Wednesday

8:00pm-9:00pm
Locations Below

Facebook

One of the great things about this inaugural day of Lent is that the ceremony came to include wearing ashes. There are many levels to the symbol. You can enter it on whatever level you choose and give it the meaning it needs to have for you. But it mainly has the two movements of the truest story: 1) It is about grieving the distance between you and God. 2) It is about waking up to the closeness of Christ in letting his light shine on you.

Locations for Ash Wednesday:

  • 2212 S Broad St
  • 2007 Frankford Ave
  • 3800 Marlton Pike
  • 29 W Tulpehocken St

February 29:
Color of Compromise

10:00am-2:00pm
2212 S. Broad St.

Facebook

An opportunity to finish Black History Month by diving into and strategizing out of the ways in which the church is implicated in upholding systemic racism. Snacks and lunch will be provided. The workshop will involve internal introspective, small group work, and body movement. We will be working with the book “The Color of Compromise” by Jemar Tisby. Reading the book or listening to the audio book is HIGHLY suggested.

Lent is a perfect time to learn new and refresh old spiritual disciplines. This day is an introduction to the season of Lent, contemplative prayer, journaling, and mutual discernment for those who are new to them. For more experienced people, it is a lovely day to be quiet and return to a place of focus as we enter into this great time of the year.
