Stepping Stone Service
Thursday, March 8
Saint John’s UMC-Austin, 2140 Allandale Rd.
Have you ever wished you had a pause button to allow yourself to stop and examine the priorities in your life?
The Lenten season challenges us to do just that, and Saint John’s Austin provides an opportunity with the Stepping Stone service. This service helps expose pathways that can deepen awareness of God’s loving omnipresence and lead toward a resurrecting walk alongside Jesus. Music, directed by Cina Crisara and sung by the Saint John’s Singers, is interspersed with dance — choreographed by Lisa Nicks — and supported by prayers, communion, and inspirational readings. Rich artistry — including that of violinist Ben Hummel, singer/composer Robbie LaBanca, and visuals by Gary Flemmons — feed our sense of direction and lead the soul home in heightened understanding of our holy existence and purpose.
