Lent course 2020
Wednesdays in Lent.
SAYING YES TO LIFE by Ruth Valerio is Archbishop of Canterbury’s Lent Book f0r 2020 and will form the basis for a discussion group for the season of Lent led by the Vicar, the Revd Juliette Hulme with the Revd Joanna Naish and Canon Judy Anderson.
The group will meet on Wednesdays at 7pm during Lent starting on March 4th. If you would like to reserve a place please contact the Revd Juliette Hulme by email through the Parish Office firstname.lastname@example.org. Numbers are limited.
In this book, Dr Valerio (who works for Tearfund) draws on the days of Creation as set out in the Book of Genesis Chapeter 1. She relates themes of light, water, land, seasons, creatures, humankind, Sabbath rest and resurrection hope, to matters of environmental, ethical and global concern. As people made in the image of God, we are entrusted to look after what he has created.
‘Given we live in a time of quite profound and justified anxiety about the planet’s future, ‘Saying Yes to Life’ is timely and on point. ‘ [Ruth Mann, The Church Times.]
