Have you ever felt a time in your life when you were tested to your limits? Have you ever felt spiritually thirsty or hungry? Have you ever felt lonely and full of despair?

Our Midweek Lenten Series theme this year is Wilderness Time. Each Tuesday during Lent starting on February 16th and ending on March 22nd, we will gather at 12pm in the chapel at PUMC for a time of worship and a time of reflection. Following the 30 minute meditation everyone is invited to stay for a light lunch in the Sanford Davis room.

We will be looking at time in the wilderness as a metaphor for the difficult times in our lives. Wilderness times are those times when we feel we are being tested to our limits, and we describe those times in wilderness terms: dry, desolate, lonely, trying, difficult, agonizing. During our series we will speak of hunger, thirst, and longing in the wilderness. This year we are fortunate to have six different United Methodist seminarians from Princeton Seminary who will lead the meditation. All are welcome!
