We all know that Lent is traditionally a time of fasting, and following the indulgences of Christmas, we typically focus on giving something up, whether it be chocolate, social media or perhaps alcohol.
But there is also great value in undertaking a discipline of doing something extra for this time. Lent is a time of reflection and spiritual growth, and what better way to allow God to work within us, than to commit to a short course of study?
The congregation of St. James are being invited and challenged to make a commitment to study together during Lent. We will do this by focusing on the book “Christianity Rediscovered” by Vincent Donovan. This was written as an epistle from the Masai, and addresses the question of what it means to be a community of faith.
This Lent activity will help us to understand and focus on Christianity as Community. We plan to run a lunchtime group and an evening group each week. Wednesday has been suggested as a suitable day for both groups to meet, but this may change depending on the needs of those interested. The suggested venue is St. James Church, Shireshead, Forton, Lancashire.
Why not make your own commitment to join us in study and prayer? We would love to travel this journey with you! In the first instance, please contact Peter by clicking here, to register your interest and find out more.
