Dakotas Cabinet Lenten Study 2022: Spiritual Formation Insights of Henri Nouwen

Our relationship with God, who loves us beyond all measure, is a journey from death to life. Each of us has a unique relationship that requires attention, contemplation, and discovery. This Lent, explore Henri Nouwen’s unparalleled wisdom on how to move from the mind to the heart and live there in the center—the place where God dwells. Join the Dakotas Conference Cabinet as they each present a chapter from Spiritual Formation - Following the Movements of the Spirit, edited by Micheal J. Christensen and Rebecca J. Laird.

Leave Your Pot on the Fire

Bishop Laurie Haller's Ash Wednesday message for 2022."The ashes of Ash Wednesday not only symbolize sorrow over our personal sin, but they are also a sign of protest over the presence of evil in our world—individual evil, corporate evil, and systemic evil. In the same way, when you and I pursue spiritual disciplines during Lent, the sacrifices that we make are not done just for us, they are done for the sake of others, those who are oppressed and downtrodden, hopeless and helpless, and those who are living in distress and despair," said Bishop Laurie Haller.
