Weekly Lenten Soup and Study

Thursdays, February 15-March 22

6:00 to 7:30 pm 

An opportunity for study as a Lenten discipline -Thursday evenings 6-7:30 begins February 15 and ends March 22.  We will start with a simple meal of soup, bread and fruit and then begin the study with Forgiveness as the theme using scripture, various spiritual disciplines and lively discussion to engage with each other.   

Forgiving others and humbly asking for forgiveness are central disciplines for all Christian believers. Lent, a time to reflect on our Christian journey, is an appropriate time to deepen our understanding and practice of forgiveness.  Each week of the study will explore a different aspect of forgiveness.  Short handouts will be provided each week before the study.  Topics to be covered include:

Feb 22  Importance of self-awareness and self-examination 

Mar 1    Loving our enemies (internal as well as external)

Mar 8    Identifying something for which we need forgiveness and seeking

              forgiveness

Mar 15  Overcoming obstacles to forgiving others

Mar 22  Forgiveness, Repentance and Justice
