Join us as we delve into the history and literature surrounding the last days of Jesus’ life. Amy Jill Levine’s Entering the Passion of Jesus will set the narrative in historical context and guide us as we analyze the risks and motives of all the story’s characters.
Join us each Wednesday in March for a shared meal. This is an intergenerational gathering — babies, children, young adults, older adults and everyone in between. After the meal, there will be worship shared around the table, communion as well as interactive response activities. Reservations are very helpful. Email [email protected] by Wednesday 12PM.
March 1: Chalupas
March 8: Enchiladas
March 22: Chicken Spaghetti
Each year, during Lent, there is an alternative set of passages from the gospel of John that pastors may choose for their sermons. I have never used the John passages, so this year, I thought, “Why NOT choose John?!” Scholars agree that John’s gospel is the last one written. The details in the narratives are more elaborate and the characters are more fully developed than in the other gospels. A New Testament scholar by the name of Susan Hylen wrote a book about some of the people we find in John. She called it Imperfect Believers: Ambiguous Characters in the Gospel of John. Her book is part of what inspired me to develop this Lenten series. Join us in Lent to hear more about some of these characters and what makes them Imperfect Believers in the gospel of John.
Join us Thursday April 6th 6-7PM, for a shared meal, interactive stations commemorating Maundy Thursday, and Holy Communion.
