2024 Lenten Series

Wednesdays February 28, March 6 and March 13

This year, St. Stephen’s is teaming up with St. Laurence Anglican Church in Lakeview for Lenten programming.

Rev. Nicole and Rev. Jane Rowland of St. Laurence will lead a two part book study on Emergent Strategy: Shaping Change, Changing Worlds by adrienne maree brown. Books are available in the Narthex for a requested donation of $26.

The final session of the Lenten series will include an all comers “Soup Supper and Evening of Lenten Poetry, Art and Music” led by Rev. Charmaine.

We hope you’ll be able to join in some or all sessions of this soulful series. Come as you are and when you are able. (You don’t even need to have read the book!)

About our Lenten Read:

Emergent Strategy is brown’s first solo work, described as a “guidebook for getting in right relationship with change, using our own nature and that of creatures beyond human as our teachers.”

You may learn more about brown and her exciting work/thought via this interview with Krista Tippett, host of the On Being podcast.
