Preparation for Lent


This Lenten season we are reading The Last Week by Marcus Borg and John Dominic Crossan, an in-depth look at the Gospel of Mark’s account of the week leading up to Easter. Sermons in Lent will also follow the readings.

In looking at the historical and political dynamics leading to the Passion (suffering) of Christ, this book offers insight into the Passion (love and desire) of Christ – to teach about the Kingdom of God . You will find it to be thought-provoking and perhaps even a little unsettling, but in a way that will deepen your understanding of your own belief.

We will meet on Thursday evenings during Lent – February 15 through March 29, beginning with pizza at 6:00 pm and discussion from 6:30 pm to no later than 7:30 pm. There will be a lesson/activity for children during the discussion. Pizza will be $5 per adult each week, and kids eat free. Books are $10 on amazon.com – if you would like for the church to order the book for you, please add your name to the list on the Welcome Center table outside of the sanctuary, or call the church office. 

See you there! And feel free to invite your friends!
