Embracing Lament: Six-Week Lenten Workshop

Wednesday Evenings, February 21, 28, March 6, 13, 20, 27 6:30 to 8:00

Share a meal of soup and bread before joining a discussion of ancient and personal lament, let by the Rev. Dr. Robert Phillips, Canon for Leadership Development and Congressional Care in the Diocese of Washington.

We will embark on a journey toward the development of our own personal lament psalms using symbols, metaphors, and images to facilitate an honest spiritual dialogue. By writing our own lament, we build a bridge from the painful grief of personal brokenness to a space imbued with grace for personal healing and growth.

Our final gathering will begin with a meal before a Service of Lament which pulls together the emotional and spiritual energies of the seminar in total as well as gives participants an opportunity to chat about their overall experience.

Sign up for one or all sessions and to bring soup or bread, or join the conversation via Zoom at 7:00 p.m.

Pastoral Care

If you or a loved one are in need of prayer or assistance, our clergy would love to provide pastoral care. Those who are sick, in the hospital, recovering from surgery, grieving, or dealing with an unexpected crisis or challenge may be visited by clergy or by trained members of the parish. Sometimes telephone calls or virtual meetings are preferred. Please let us know by calling the Parish Office at 202-232-2995 or by emailing the Rector, the Rev. Richard Weinberg, or the Associate Rector, the Rev. Diana Gustafson to request a visit, meeting, or phone call. Some parish volunteers are also licensed to take Communion to parishioners who are in the hospital or are homebound. Arrangements can be made by contacting clergy directly or through the church office.
