Soup & Reflection Series 2013
We gather on Wednesday nights in Lent to share fellowship over a simple meal of soup, followed by a Lent reflection and discussion for those who choose to participate. We will watch short video presentations on the meaning of the cross and other Lent themes in art, poetry, and literature, and then share a time of discussion and reflection.
Feb. 20 – Soup & Reflection on “Painting, Crucified” Part 1 – images of the cross in Western art
Feb. 27 – Soup & Reflection on “Painting, Crucified” Part 2 – images of the cross in Western art
Mar. 6 – Soup & Reflection on “Wondrous That Tree: The Cross in Poetry.”
Mar. 13 – Soup & Reflection on “The Grotesque Iconography of Flannery O’Connor” – the short story “Parker’s Back” in light of Christ’s cross
Mar. 20 – Soup & Reflection on “The (Other) Good Thief,” – the twisting path carved by the grace of Christ’s cross in the life of a 20th-century murderer.
Though you are welcome to arrive at 7:00 for the Lenten program, you are also welcome to join our informal soup suppers which run from 6:15 to 7:00 each Wednesday evening in the South Parlor. Following the supper we move to the Parlor for the reflection at 7:00.
Come. Enjoy this Lenten experience. And please, bring a friend!
