Lent course - On the Third Day

A new 5-session ecumenical course for discussion groups written by Bishop John Pritchard. Rationale: The resurrection is the Big Story that turned a little Jewish protest movement into a world-transforming religion. And yet by Easter Monday we’ve almost forgotten about it and are planning our summer holidays. How can we re-capture the explosive power of the resurrection that ricocheted around the world? How can we live in the glow of resurrection and be an Easter people? How can ‘there and then’ become ‘here and now’?

5 Sessions (All sessions begin at 10.30am in room 6 ):

1. Have I got news for you!                                24th February

2. So what? The implications of the Resurrection   3rd March         

3. ‘Let him easter in us’                                      10th March

4. Celebrating and praying Easter                                    17th March

5. A risen Church                                               24th March
