Lamenting Lost Creeks: A Lenten Journey (Winnipeg, MB)
February 27 @ 6:00 pm - April 3 @ 6:30 pm CST
Lent is a solemn Christian practice of reflection, repentance, prayer and fasting. This 40 day period leading up to Easter invites Christians to intentionally set aside time to deepen one’s faith and commitment to God.
You are invited on a lenten journey focused on lamenting with God and creation for creeks and rivers that have been lost, degraded, or altered as a result of human demand.
What will this journey look like? Once per week Scott will host a prayer walk in the location of a lost creek in the city of Winnipeg. The walk will begin with a short opening prayer and brief acknowledgment of this creek’s history. In addition, Scott will share briefly about another river in Canada and/or the world to be held in prayer/solidarity along with the place and people who are impacted by the demands placed on it.
We will walk for a total 30mins (return). During our walk you are invited to contemplate, pray (silently), and if you are able pick up garbage (bring gloves/bags).
