LENT




DUE TO COVID-19 WE WILL NOT BE MEETING AT THE CHURCH FOR LENTEN SOUP SUPPERS AND MEDITATIONS TOGETHER THIS YEAR.

The Lent Study this year is
“Lent in Plain Sight”
by Jill Duffield.

Everyone is encouraged to purchase the book and we can all study it together and share our thoughts over the phone and texting and email.

Here is summary:
God is often at work through the ordinary: ordinary people, ordinary objects, ordinary grace. Through the ordinary, God communicates epiphanies, salvation, revelation, and reconciliation. It is through the mundane that we hear God’s quiet voice.

Jill J. Duffield draws our attention to ten ordinary objects that Jesus would have encountered on his way to Jerusalem: dust, bread, the cross, coins, shoes, oil, coats, towels, thorns, and stones. In each object, you can find meaning in the biblical account of Jesus’ final days.

Even though we are not meeting in person, consider reading the book, (available on Amazon) find the different objects at home to consider through Scripture, prayer, and reflection.

From Ash Wednesday to Easter, Lent in Plain Sight reminds Christians to open ourselves to the kingdom of God.

Easter is coming soon!
