Woven - A Lent Course
Six session Lent course written by Revd Michaela Youngson,
former London District Chair
Due to demand we are delighted to be republishing 'Woven – A Lent Course’, a component of the District's theme for 2019-2022*.
As people of faith we know that our story and God’s story are woven together, not because we wish it to be so but because God is interested in the smallest detail of our lives. The God who knit us together in our mothers’ wombs is the same God who knows the number of hairs on our heads and who loved us and the whole world enough to send Jesus to show us the way of love.
Lent is a season during which we reflect on our personal relationship with God and on every Christian’s responsibility to engage with the world as it is. We notice again God’s prompting to move on from personal reflection, through shared study, towards lives of love in action. We remember that Jesus travelled a journey from his baptism, through the wilderness and beyond, to a ministry of teaching and healing, of challenging injustice and of holding the powerful to account. We will remember the cost that Jesus paid for standing up for those who were most vulnerable and we will look towards the eternal hope that lies beyond the sacrifice.
*For clarity, please be advised that this Lent Course is the same as that originally published in 2021.
