Scarritt Bennett Center Lenten Retreat: “Listen the Silence Speaks.”

March 28 (dinner) – March 3. Melissa Tidwell will lead a silent retreat designed to provide space, resources, and content for enrichment, reenergizing and renewal during the season of Lent. The art of listening will be experienced through a variety of exercises and resources. Each participant will have time for introspection and prayer, and time to gain strength and direction to continue the spiritual journey. Rev. Tidwell is a former editor of Alive Now and currently pastor of Westminster Presbyterian Church in Xenia, Ohio. Registration is at https//bit.ly/silencespeaks2019 and available are commuter and residential rates. Come and experience silence in the midst of an urban setting.

Stewardship Report 

Since making our appeal for members to consider a 10% increase in pledges, we have received 32 new or increased pledges for an increase of $23,084! The total now stands at 66 pledges for $285,828. Thank you all for your support of Edgehill. The pledge line is still open at stewardship@edgehill.org or 615-254-7628. Some members have said they will just increase the amount of their regular checks. Those contributions are certainly welcome, but we feel more confident planning our budget with pledge commitments.

In our society we love to discuss things but don't really know how to do it.
Frequently arguments and hurt feelings occur instead of a rich sharing of ideas. Come to Adult Education Sundays in March and we will learn how to do it, led by Jim Zralek.
