This year we are grateful to the Scottish Bible Society for our Lent material “Lenten Study Conversations”. This will involve studying a number of the actions and teachings of Jesus, in order to prepare ourselves for the momentous events of Holy Week and Easter. Lent begins rather early this year, on February 10, so we need to get our act together sooner rather than later, hence this warning shot across your bows !
The idea is that each week we look at a particular action or teaching in some detail, and in the process sit in smaller groups for part of the time, before reporting our feedback to the full group. There may be variations on this scheme, which was first used among students at the International Christian College in Glasgow.
The Sunday morning group have already tried out a similar course designed for Advent, and have recommended it. We are planning groups for Sunday morning, Tuesday evening and Thursday afternoon, as well as Wednesday evening depending on numbers. A sign-up sheet will be on the noticeboard in due course.
The Ministry Team very much hope that you will make time in Lent for this Bible study course.
