Entering the Passion of Jesus
Join us on Wednesdays at 2 PM beginning March 6
Or on Thursdays at 6 PM beginning March 7
From the publisher:
Jesus’ final days were full of risk. Every move he made was filled with anticipation, danger, and the potential for great loss or great reward. Jesus risked his reputation when he entered Jerusalem in a victory parade. He risked his life when he dared to teach in the Temple. His followers risked everything when they left behind their homes, or anointed him with costly perfume. We take risks as we read and re-read these stories, finding new meanings and new challenges.
In Entering the Passion of Jesus: A Beginner’s Guide to Holy Week, author, professor, and biblical scholar Amy-Jill Levine explores the biblical texts surrounding the Passion story. She shows us how the text raises ethical and spiritual questions for the reader, and how we all face risk in our Christian experience.
Please read Chapter 1 prior to our first meeting.
Books (including electronic and large print) are available at most major books sellers. A limited number of books is available at the church office.

A Journey Through the Desert of Lent
A small group spiritual formation opportunity for the season of Lent
Sundays at 8:30 AM beginning March 7
Produced by “The Work of the People”, this video series reflects on poems for Lent. Viewed as a kind of audio-visual lectio divina, these films offer an opportunity for reflection, discussion, and entering into the places of our hearts we might not often journey – a detour through the wilderness. We hope that this series gives you a place to begin a journey that will lead you out of Lent and to Palm Sunday, Good Friday, and into the hope of Easter.
