Prayer Opportunities

Lent 2023

This Lent, Providence Renewal Centre invites you to explore writing as a sacred practice. Let your pen be your prayer partner as we explore the Lenten Scriptures.

God speaks to us in many ways. We may think we control what we write, but we may be surprised by our own inspiration…after all, God’s Spirit lives within! As Henri Nouwen puts it,

Writing is a process in which we discover what lives in us. The writing itself reveals to us what is alive in us. The deepest satisfaction of writing is precisely that it opens up new spaces within us of which we were not aware before we started to write. To write is to embark on a journey whose final destination we do not know. Thus, writing requires a real act of trust. We have to say to ourselves: “I do not yet know what I carry in my heart, but I trust that it will emerge as I write.” Writing is like giving away the few loaves and fishes one has, trusting that they will multiply in the giving. Once we dare to “give away” on paper the few thoughts that come to us, we start discovering how much is hidden underneath these thoughts and gradually come in touch with our own riches.

Follow our social media accounts for weekly prompts to dialogue with the Divine in writing this Lent.

The Labyrinth

We are all on the path . . . exactly where we need to be. The labyrinth is a model of that path. A labyrinth is an ancient symbol that relates to wholeness. It combines the imagery of the circle and the spiral into a meandering but purposeful path.
