Go Without Hesitation: Lent Series

February 20 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am


Go Without Hesitation: Lent Series with Pam Shellberg

Join us for a 5-week study of a gripping tale from the New Testament book of Acts where Peter, Jesus’ disciple, and Cornelius, a Roman centurion, present us with a historical diorama of conflicts mirroring back to us how perceiving God’s will and knowing how to respond is rarely straightforward.

The story guides us in the ways of discerning God’s purposes, asking us to bravely sit with questions we might have about God’s purposes and our faith commitments in the midst of change and transition.

It marks out ways that we can, together, discern truth in our doubts and confusions and hear God’s wisdom in our more vulnerable times. The Spirit directs Peter – and us – to go without hesitation! And so, we will go, unhesitatingly, to live and love in the power and promise of the Holy One.

We’ll meet one time per week (Tuesday mornings in-person or Wednesday evenings via Zoom). The sessions will be part study, part small group sharing and reflection and part lectio divina and contemplation.

In-Person Schedule

  • 10:00-11:30 am – Large and small group sessions in the retreat and guest house room 113
  • 11:45 am – Midday prayer with the Benedictine sisters of Holy Wisdom Monastery (optional)
  • 12:00 pm – Lunch – Consider staying for a delicious lunch for an additional cost of $16.60/person. Please contact Nova Weston, 48 hours in advance, to reserve your lunch at nweston@holywisdommonastery.org or 608-836-1631, x158 (optional)


Lent Series Leader – Pam ShellbergPam Shellberg is the director of spiritual nourishment at Holy Wisdom Monastery. She is presenting this event because:

  1. It is a good story for times of change and transition when God’s purposes are not so clear and when doubts, confusions, vulnerabilities cast shadows across one’s faith commitments.
  2. Bible study is part of the balance of Benedictine life.
  3. Lent is a season of preparation for new life in Christ, and it is well for us to turn to sacred texts to examine the unexpected paths to that new life, challenges and demands.
  4. Pam has been an assistant professor of New Testament and eager share from her learning and experience.
