Lenten Quiet Day at Mediator Allentown

Organic God
A Lenten Quiet Day
Saturday, March 14, 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

Jesus often used images of nature’s organic growth to teach about faith: a sower sowing seeds; a grain of wheat falling into the earth; the smallest mustard seed becoming the largest bush for birds to nest in. This Quiet Day, led by Timothy Bingham, will incorporate readings from Organic God, by Katherine Moorehead, which explores these images, inviting us to reflect the God who gives growth to the earth and to our lives. Tim recently graduated from the Shalem Institue for Spiritual Formation and he and his wife Susan are active members of Mediator.

The format will be to have a 5 to 10 minute reading each hour, then pairing off for a brief period of discussion followed by silence.

Tim says, “I find that in a structured Quiet Day, it is easier for me to have concentrated meditation than when I am alone. The energy of the Church and of the other devotees helps me stay focused.”
