Lent begins on March 2 with the imposition of ashes, that ancient reminder of our mortality. A mortality which we explore throughout lent, not because we are wallowing in despair, but as a preparation for the renewal of life at Easter. Lents focus on our souls, its salvation, and the maturation of our faith, is a practice of continually deepening our relationship with Jesus. A relationship that transforms our lives because of how it teaches us to engage in, and with, the world.

Lent 2022 formation opportunities will all be about relationships. Relationships with ourselves, our neighbor and God. Relationships are hard, often fraught with pain and anxiety, with a really deep awareness that we are all going through something hard everyday. Every single one of us. Lent gives us an opportunity to study, listen, and learn about the power of relationships to heal and mature our faith as we grow within ourselves and alongside others at the same time. 

All of our formation opportunities will be on zoom this year, given the still present pandemic and to allow for greater involvement of those who might be homebound. There are some costs associated with the programs, but they are offered at a subsidized rate.

Pilgrim Course: Church And Kingdom

  • This series explores what it means to live as a child of the kingdom of God and to follow in the way of Christ each day as a member of his Church. Its six sessions combine simple prayer, reflection on the Bible in the lectio divina style, an article by a modern writer, and time for questions and reflection.
  • Cost: Free

We meet every Sunday from March 6 - April 10, on Zoom, from 1-2pm for discussion and prayer.

Book Study: "Reconciliation, by Muthuraj Swamy"

  • Global in scope, but homing in on the role ordinary people play in conflict and division, Reconciliation enables Christians to engage confidently in a ministry bequeathed to us by Christ himself.

    The book issues a vibrant call to the church to support and strengthen relationships amongst church members; to cross borders to build connections with different denominations, and to maintain open attitudes towards our neighbours from other religions and ideologies.

    Forty biblically-based meditations introduce topics such as Impediments to reconciliation, risking the self, humility and self-criticism, radical openness to the other andpeace with justice. Questions for reflection are included, making Reconciliation suitable for use at weekly gatherings or for everyday devotion during Lent.
  • Cost: $10, for the book. (A $20 value)

We will meet Wednesdays at 4pm, on March 9, 23, and April 6th, on Zoom.
