LENT 2014: In order to feed your body and soul this Lenten season (the 40 days before Easter), CHT is offering a series of Wednesday night dinners AND two courses starting March 12. Join us at 6:00 p.m. for a delicious dinner - open to all. From 6:45-8:00 p.m., we will have two classes to choose from. Contact the church office at 203.227.0827 or email.
- Led by the Heart: A 5-week course led by Emily Sieracki with guest teachers will explore Christian “practices,” from worship to handling money, from hospitality to Sabbath, that shape ourselves and our community into people who desire something vastly different than what the rest of the world imagines as valuable. (03/12; 03/19; 03/26; 04/02; 04/09)
- Begin.Again: Whether you are a newcomer to our church or someone wanting to go deeper in this familiar faith, join us for a course that looks at Christianity with fresh eyes. This 10-week course (AKA “Foundations”) will explore the historic church, social justice, ancient and modern spirituality, prayer practices, and our own place within it all. Whitney Edwards is the principal teacher. (03/12; 03/19; 03/26; 04/02; 04/09; 04/30; 05/07; 05/14; 05/21; 05/28)

Walking in the Way
Spirited Walking All too often during exercise we think about our to-do list or worry over current problems. Try reading just before, or bringing along, one of the Lenten Meditations offered; or try to focus on a simple statement that underlies your spiritual grounding. Our beliefs come to us in varied ways: from childhood Sunday School classes, from life experiences, or the witnessing of others.
“What our Lord requires of us is this – to do justice; to love mercy, and to walk humbly with our God.” Micah 6:8
Where are we headed? We are on our way from the coast of France, through the Alps towards Turin, Italy. Consider the thousands of hours that have been spent studying and researching the Shroud of Turin, the centuries old linen cloth bearing the image of a crucified man. Millions have believed that man to be Jesus of Nazareth. This may be one of the most studied artifacts in human history, and the controversy still rages as to whether this is the cloth that wrapped Christ’s crucified body; a medieval forgery or a hoax?
How does our pilgrimage work?
Any 15 minutes of moderate exercise = 1 mile.
Track your miles per week (Sunday – Saturday ) during Lent.
Add up your total family miles each Saturday and:
1. put them with your family name in the Offertory plate Sunday
2. place them in the Walking in the Way bag in the Servery Classroom
3. email to Ginny
