Interested in gathering with others this winter and spring and would prefer a study guide that is Christian-based? Consider “A Lenten Series for our Age.”
Friends of Spirit of the Land have developed this series as well. It is focused specifically on the Christian faith. Whereas, “Making Peace with the Land” series is accessible to all, honoring and welcoming the diversity of beliefs, philosophies and traditions from which we all come. Both series follow a similar structure of weekly gatherings.
A Lenten Series for our Age: 7 Study Sessions for Congregational Groups
Lent invites us to slow down and take time to learn from Scripture how to examine our lives “before God.” It’s a time to reflect, repent, reconcile and renew.
Spend your time in Lenten discipline reflecting on what repentance and reconciliation in Christ might mean for us in the 21st century, and find the courage and encouragement to act on what you learn.
Join Norman Wirzba and Fred Bahnson as they take us on a Lenten journey in their recent book: Making Peace with the Land (God’s Call to Reconcile with Creation).
Congregational studies, as a 7-week series, will be supported by one or two-page outlines for each week, with notes, highlighted Scripture readings, questions, and hymn suggestions.
Interested clergy and congregational councils, please see the ‘Week One’ outline that can be found on the BC Synod website. For the complete series, click on the link below. The Outlines have been prepared by the Faith and Society committee, BC Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada.
