Grounded Lent 2019 Logo.png

 During Lent 2019 (March 6 to April 21st) we are reading the book Grounded by Diana Butler Bass and sharing around the questions that it raises in small groups. You can join a group HERE, and/or reflect upon the book using the Discussion Guides we’ll use in our time together. Each guide includes questions for processing the material of the book; scriptures upon which you can meditate, as well as a weekly spiritual practice through which you can further wrestle with the ideas of the book and small groups.

You can find these reading guides online on Monte’s Blog our CAPC Oakland Blog or by downloading the corresponding PDF below:

Each Sunday we’re setting up a spiritual practice table in our gathering space with an active practice prayer engaging the theme of the week with which you can begin worship. Or you can take it with you and do it during the week.
