Looking for ways to deepen your relationship with God and your neighbors this Lent? Here are a few great offerings from around the Church for 2018. Most of these programs and activities are suitable for individuals and congregations alike.
Join the Good Book Club.
The Good Book Club invites you to read the Gospel of Luke and the Book of Acts during Lent-Easter 2018. Episcopalians will start reading Luke on Sunday, February 11 and read a section of Luke’s Gospel every day through the season of Lent. The entire season of Easter will be devoted to daily readings from the Book of Acts.
Want to add some multimedia? ChurchNext is offering a free five-week online video course, “Luke the Liberator,” to complement the Good Book Club.
Attend a Listening Session.
Meet Jesus in the Gospel of John.
With a beautiful prayer journal, facilitation guidance for small groups (and more) from the Center for the Ministry of Teaching, and videos from the monks of the Society of St. John the Evangelist (SSJE), Meeting Jesus is a six-week journey and reflection on the Gospel According to John.
Make a Lenten Prayer Space at Home.
