Awe & Compassion

with Rev. Daranne Harris

May 6-27 (on Zoom)

Thursdays at 9am


Threads of awe and compassion woven through the fabric of humanity


Awe is an experience of wonder that often has qualities of vastness or reverence to it. Compassion is a process of noticing suffering and taking action to alleviate suffering. Come explore how awe and compassion weave through Christianity and other spiritual and religious traditions. In this 4-part series, participants will explore awe and compassion in sacred texts and traditions while also reflecting on personal experiences and practices.


Rev. Daranne Harris is a theologian-scientist who brings together the heart and science of compassion. This calling reflects her pastoral heart and doctoral research on how experiences of awe relate to the practice of compassion. In 2019, she founded Catalyzing Compassion, which offers compassion education and brings together a community to advance the practice of compassion for self and others.

Lenten Poetry

with Rev. Sean Bell

February 18 - April 1 (on Zoom)

Thursdays at 9am


In this Lenten devotional, the words of scripture and the poetry of Emily Dickinson will be our guides. Each week, biblical texts and Dickinson’s poems throw light on each other, pointing toward simple, powerful practices you can try yourself, with your family or friends, or in concert with your congregation.

Rev. Sean Bell will lead us through reflection and discussion on these texts and poems.

Hello, my name is Sean Bell and I’m the Chaplain of Luther College at the University of Regina. Luther College is both a High School and University Campus in Regina. I grew up in Southern Alberta and have been involved with many Lutheran ministries: attended CLBI ('94 to '96), was a camp counsellor at Kinasao ('95 and '97), served as the director of Mulhurst ('02 and '03), was ordained as a Pastor ('09), and served two Alberta parishes ('09 to '19). I look forward to going on this exploration of poetry and themes of Lent with you!

With Pastor Doug Heine of the ELCIC Alberta Synod CARE Team


This conversation is based on a resource that addresses the questions so many of us are facing during this pandemic: How do we understand and process grief as people of faith? How can we support vulnerable and grieving members of our community while practicing physical distancing? Where can we find hope and joy in this season?


Four short films feature insights from a panel of experts with knowledge and experience in the fields of counselling, psychology, theology, and palliative care. These films are followed by discussion and sharing.
