Alabama Pilgrimage

On June 19-22, we will make our first pilgrimage to Montgomery, Alabama to visit the Legacy and Justice Museum and National Memorial for Peace and Justice. Pilgrimages visit sacred places in our history and tradition so that we might better understand our own journeys. These sites were established by the Equal Justice Initiative as our nation’s first memorial dedicated to the legacy of enslaved black people, those terrorized by lynching and Jim Crow segregation, and the ongoing threat of police violence and mass incarceration to African American men and women. Our visit to Alabama will help us better understand what’s happening in our own neighborhoods and city and how our faith can help us to take action here. If you are interested in joining the pilgrimage, please contact Anne Marie.

Lenten Reflection Book
Download or purchase a hardcopy ($10) of our 2019 Lenten Reflection Book, Pilgrimage: Discovery, Discomfort, Devotion. Heavenly Rest’s Jerusalem pilgrims have shared photos, drawings,reflections, and passages from the devotional materials used on the pilgrimage.

Lenten Night Prayer in the Nave
During the season of Lent, we are moving Night Prayer into the Nave. Invite a friend to join us for the last prayers of the day in our beautiful candlelit sanctuary on Sunday evenings at 7pm, starting on March 10.

Need a Prayer

Open my lips, O Lord,
and my mouth shall proclaim your praise.

Create in me a clean heart, O God,
and renew a right spirit within me.

Cast me not away from your presence
and take not your holy Spirit from me.

Give me the joy of your saving help again
and sustain me with your bountiful Spirit.

Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit:
as it was in the beginning, is now, and will be for ever. Amen.
