Adult Forum:  Lent and the Desert Tradition

March 1, 2020: 11:30am

Lent begins on Ash Wednesday, initiating a season of communal and personal reflection and preparation before the celebrations of Easter. By observing Lent, Christians recreate Jesus’s withdrawal into the desert for 40 days. This morning’s presentation by Ed Sellner will examine the potential meaning we might find in this season of Lent, as well as the wisdom of the desert fathers and mothers who followed Jesus’s example by living in the desert regions of Egypt, Palestine, and Syria. These early Christian hermits, ascetics, and monks were the pioneers in the rise of monasticism, including Benedictine, which highly influenced the Anglican tradition of spirituality. 

A Half-Quiet Day Retreat for Men and Women on Celtic Spirituality

March 7, 2020: 10:30am-1:00pm

Our retreat today will focus on Celtic spirituality, from ancient times to the present, with special emphasis on the topics of soul friend and thin places. Ed Sellner will describe those qualities that many people today, of all sorts of backgrounds and religious affiliations, find especially appealing, such as the Celtic emphasis on nature, women’s leadership and gifts, kinship with animals, and the eternal value of friendships. Time for personal reflection and discussion among participants will be part of the retreat time together. 

~~~~~Ed Sellner, Ph.D., is professor emeritus of theology, St. Catherine University where he taught graduate and undergraduate courses for 35 years, as well as administered pastoral ministry, spiritual direction and master’s degree programs. A graduate of the University of Notre Dame, he is author of numerous books on Celtic spirituality and other topics, his most recent, a memoir, Our Dog Red: A Small Token of Remembrance (2019) and Celtic Saints and Animal Stories: A Spiritual Kinship (2020). Ed is a popular speaker nationally and internationally, a retreat director and spiritual guide, trained at the Jung Institute in Zurich, Switzerland.~~~~~
