Ponderings for Lent

Poetic Ponderings for Lent

A Virtual Lenten Journey Pairing Scripture with the Poetry of Mary Oliver

(Zoom Gatherings on Mondays in Lent at 6:30PM)


Every journey needs a guide - and what better guide to the 40 days of Lent than the beloved, Pulitzer Prize-winning poet, Mary Oliver?


In this 6-week virtual journey together we will explore the beloved poetry of Mary Oliver to help us illuminate ancient passages of scripture, provoke meditations on key Lenten themes, and point us toward simple practices to deepen our connection with God during this season.


Rev. Sandra Bottoms, will lead this virtual gathering on Zoom each week. To register, simply email Sandra at sbottoms@chesterpres.org and let her know you want to participate. Each week she will email you a link with information about how to join in that week’s Zoom gathering.


Join us on Monday evenings beginning February 22 at 6:30PM. The six Monday evening Zooms are:  Feb 22, March 1, March 8, March 15, March 22, and March 29.
