A “Thin Place” Between Death & Resurrection
The term “thin place” is frequently found in Celtic spirituality. It connotes a place where the veil between the material world and the eternal world is thin, so thin it is as though the two worlds are fused together. For too long, we have separated the reality of death from resurrection. The season of Lent is a blessed opportunity to explore the thin place between the experience of death and resurrection. During this day of reflection, we will contemplate the inner connection of dying and rising with the help of sacred scripture and the mystics. We will spend time in discussion as a group and then in silence during personal reflection time.
