Growing Together — Lenten Series

2018-02-06-Mark

Wednesday Evenings @ 7:00pm
Meeting God in Mark: This Lenten season join us as we read through a very short and beautifully written book by the former Archbishop of Canterbury, Rowan Williams. The book, Meeting God in Mark: Reflections for the Season of Lent, is packed with illuminating spiritual insights, and the focus on the Passion narrative makes it a rich companion to the Gospel of Mark.  The book explores the meaning and purpose of Mark’s Gospel and calls readers to see God working in the world around them.  We will be gathering on Wednesday evenings for discussion and learning based on the book’s reflections and prayers.  The cost of the book is $10.  Feel free to buy the book on your own online or let Stephen Smith know that you would like a copy by today, and the office will order you a copy.  All are welcome – even if you are unable to read the book, please feel free to join us on Wednesdays for new insights and learning. 

Looking for a Lenten practice? This Lent, the Adult Formation Team invites you to dust off your old Bible and read through the entire Gospel of Mark.  Below please find the first week’s readings in Mark. A complete schedule is available here, or in the entry at church.
