LENTEN STUDY ON THE TUESDAYS OF LENT

Our first Lenten Study will begin on Tuesday, February 24 after our Soup and Sandwich/Salad Supper. This year our study book will be FORGIVENESS A Lenten Study by Marjorie J. Thompson.

"Forgiveness is the healing stream flowing our from the crucified Christ over a world that does not know how desperately it needs healing." (from the introduction).

Forgiving others and humbly asking for forgiveness are central disciplines for all Christian believers. Lent is an appropriate time to deepen our understanding and practice of forgiveness. The book contains six brief chapters by Marjorie Thompson, author of the best-selling book Soul Feast, that address such questions as...

  • Is forgiveness a Christian duty under all circumstances? Or are there situations when Christians do not need to forgive?
  • Is forgiveness a matter between individuals, or is it meaningful only in the context of communities?
  • Is forgiving the best route to healing for the injured?
  • How do we get past emotional barriers to real forgiveness?

Through Bible study and real life illustrations, Thompson leads us into learning about forgiveness in an informative and engaging way.

Mark your calendars and plan to join us for our 2015 Lenten Study. The studey will follow the Soup and Salad/Sandwich Supper that starts at 5:30 PM. The studey will begin at 6:00 and conclude at 6:45.
