Lenten Christian Education Study Group: “Signs of Life: Why Church Matters” from Rev. Dana
As you can see above in my article “Lent Resources and Ideas” this year’s Lenten study comes to us from the Society of St. John the Evangelist and Virginia Theological Seminary. It is called “Signs of Life: Why Church Matters,” and explores five symbols – light, water, food, shelter, and community. The study runs for 5 weeks, Tuesdays, March 3-31. Using video and discussion, it explores the riches of our worship traditions, liturgy and sacraments, as well as the art and architecture of our sacred spaces. In addition to the weekly video and discussion there are additional resources which can be used in conjunction with the study group or on your own, such as a weekly reading, a daily practices calendar and an email you can sign up to receive. Printed resources are available on our Lent resources table in the Upper Room. I hope you will consider joining us on Tuesday evenings or using some of the resources on your own.
This Lenten season Bishop Andrew Asbil is hosting a conversation each Tuesday evening in the month of March. The location of the studies will shift week to week throughout the Diocese. You can register to attend one or more evenings on the diocesan website (to give them an idea for refreshments).
