Looking forward to Lent….
Our Lent course will be a little different this year. Our Bishop, Melissa Skelton, wants us to use a booklet of “Offering and Reflection” prepared by the Brothers of the Society of St. John the Evangelist. It is based on the Gospel of John, and provides a wonderful way of engaging with the God “whose self-definition is love and who sent His son so that we may experience life in its fullness”.
For each participant there is a daily journal, which is a helpful and practical way of making the scriptures your own. We will then get together as a group for four sessions to share our thoughts as well as studying the background and theological themes of John’s Gospel.
See the Rector to obtain your journal ($5.00) and pick up the purple leaflet at the back of church for details of the plenary sessions.
