Quiet Day
The Daughters of the King (DOK) and the Episcopal Church Women (ECW) hosted a joint quiet day in March. The event served as a time for introspection as this year’s Lenten journey began. The DOK Diocesan chaplain, the Rev. Ann Kidder, chose the theme of the Province V DOK triennium, Strength for the Journey. The theme focuses on acceptance, security, and optimism/hope. The event started with Eucharist and then had three separate periods that tied in with each one of the triennium themes. Each period lasted about an hour and included reflection and about an hour to meditate, read, walk the labyrinth, or spend time with the Stations of the Cross. At lunchtime there were tables where participants could continue to be in silence or could be at a table for conversation. Part of the goal was to build community and to give an opportunity for the participants to get to know each other. The hope, along with the piety, was to build community
