Wondering in the Wilderness:

A Call to Connect with the Spirit in Each Other 

A Six-Week Series Facilitated by Julie Demaree

(meets weekly on Saturdays from 12-1 PM Eastern Time)

What you wonder about can lead to great angst, insight, wrestling, wisdom, and joy. It can also be a wonder-full way to connect and share with the Spirit in yourself and others. The season of Lent is approaching, and has traditionally represented Jesus’s time in the wilderness, a desert place of extremes to which he was led by the Spirit. 

This Lenten season, Lumunos invites you to a small group experience of “wondering in the wilderness.” This will be a time set-apart, to center and connect deeply with the Spirit who fills and leads each of us; where what we ponder, gaze upon, and consider as sacred, is the content for what we will share during our time together.  

In this series, facilitated by Julie Demaree, we will explore and experience several kinds of wonder, including curiosity (things that make us go “hmmm”) and awe (things that make us go “wow”). Each participant will keep a “wonder journal” and have the option to share from it. There will also be a prompt (a quote, a question, a piece of art, a song, etc.) to ponder together, and then to share responses. Rather than focusing on the external content, the focus will be on listening to each other’s internal “wonderings,” and on building deep connections over our six weeks together, in Lumunos small group style.

This series is donation based, with a suggested donation of $10 per session.
