ARE YOU LOST IN THE DARK WOOD?


Gifts of the Dark Wood:  Seven Blessings for the Soulful Skeptics (and Other Wanderers) is the topic of Fr. Cameron’s Lenten discussion at 5:30 p.m. each Sunday in Lent.  The “dark wood” is generally a place to fear and avoid, but it is also “the surest place to meet God.” Those feelings of being lost, tempted and alone are the gifts of the Dark Wood because they cause one to probe, question and discover.  Find the book, along with other Lenten resources at the Parish Book Store.
