LENT COURSE

Join our Lent group

Wednesdays from 10.30am-noon at the Vicarage on March 9th, 16th, 23, and 30th. Our theme will be “Live Lent: Embracing Justice”, which is based on Isabelle Hamley’s book “Embracing Justice.” The book invites us to examine our own lives truthfully, to see the world more deeply and to pray that “justice may roll down like waters and righteousness like an ever-flowing stream” (Amos 5.24) Please could you let Bill know if you intend to come because depending on numbers the Lent Course may move to the Church.

Pick up a Lent booklet in Church
Also this year we will be taking part in “Live Lent: Embracing Justice” the CofE’s theme for Lent this year.
We have a box of booklets which contain 40 daily reflections to help us act and pray for a fairer world, beginning on Ash Wednesday (2 March) and ending on Easter Day (17 April). Please take one and use it. For each of the 40 days of Lent there is a passage from the Bible, a short reflection on the theme of justice, and a simple prayer.
For children and families there is a free app for iphones  or smartphones with audio recordings, 40 exciting daily challenges for each day of Lent, a weekly theme to help us think about how we can live well together and some simple prayers.
