SPIRITUAL LOCATIONS &..................DISLOCATIONS
Life is full of locations and dislocations, but they are not just geographical. There are also spiritual and emotional locations that give us security and the dislocation of which throws us into turmoil. The loss of child-hood, the loss of love, the loss of loved ones all cause “dislocations” in our existence that challenge our faith and ability to love. Join us this Lent as we look at how God enters in-to our locations and dislocations in Jesus Christ to bring about the new being in us.
The evening service will be Holden Evening Prayer. Noon service Midday Prayer. These services ARE good for you.

The disorientation brought on by death. Despair or hope? What will drive our life’s journey? Life always follows death.
