Here’s another useful resource for Lent. Does anyone else have anything they have prepared, or are aware of? It would be good to compile a list to go on our website.
Hope for Lent
Disenchantment with our political and economic systems is running very high.
So where might we find genuine hope – hope that will not disappoint us?
Christians believe that any hope we can really trust must have its source in the grace and love of God. That’s more than a pious platitude: in the midst of so much cynicism and disappointment, the Church is both showing and telling a different way to live.
Hope, Actually is a five week Lent course which explores the hope we find in Jesus Christ, and its power to transform our increasingly anxious and cynical society. www.cuf.org.uk/lentresources
Each session has a mix of discussion, Bible study (on that Sunday’s lectionary readings) and video stories. It ends with suggestions for prayer and ideas for action.
