WEDNESDAY EXPLORERS is an open discussion group, facilitated by Vesta Kowalski, which meets in the St. John’s Common Room from 1:30-3:00 on Wednesday afternoons. We discuss a different topic each week, chosen by the group. Anyone is welcome to come once, occasionally, or regularly; friends are welcome, too.  During Lent, we will be discussing the various parts of the Lord’s Prayer:

February 25 – “Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name. Your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as in heaven.”

March 4 – “Give us today our daily bread.”

March 11 – “Forgive us our sins as we forgive those who sin against us.”

March 18 – “Save us from the time of trial, and deliver us from evil.”
