Holy Week Special Events

Maundy Thursday Service at 12 Hills Nature Center. 6:30pm
Join us this Thursday at an urban nature preserve in Oak Cliff. Come at 6:30 to walk a bit of the trails and listen to the birds. At 7pm we will gather for a walking meditation to commemorate this day, also called the “Thursday of mysteries,” as we remember Jesus and his commandment to love one another.

(Note- DART Stations has been cancelled this year. see below)
For the past two years, DART Stations of the Cross has served as a way for our community to contemplate the meaning of the cross.  It has been rewarding for many of us both as participants and organizers.
Unfortunately, we simply weren’t able to put it together this year.  The submissions we had were beautiful and heartfelt, but we still lacked about half of them earlier this week.  With mounting schoolwork, I haven’t had the time to give the project the personal attention it needs to succeed.  And so I regretfully say goodbye to DART Stations for 2011.
The submissions will be posted on our Web site for the community to read. I hope that those who contributed met God at some point in the process and I invite everyone who is available to join me on Good Friday for the screening of ‘Son of Man.’
Grace and Peace,
Scott Shirley
