Lenten Forum begins February 24
Join us Wednesday evenings at 7 p.m. on Zoom beginning February 24 (through march 31) for Resurrection Shaped Life. The study is based on the book by that title by the Rt. Rev. Jake Owensby, bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Western Louisiana. Jesus’ resurrection was an extraordinary, singular event, but through a life shaped by the resurrection, we, too, can experience extraordinary resurrection even within the realm of our ordinary lives on earth.  Through a re-examination of the biblical concept of resurrection, illustrating how it can influence us as Christians every day, we’ll learn that a resurrection-shaped life:

  • finds hope through honest reflection on the past
  • discovers meaning in suffering
  • moves beyond shame and blame toward self-acceptance and compassion
  • emerges from loss and regret to find contentment and joy
  • develops forgiveness as a habitual way of life
  • transcends "us-them" divisions to form inclusive community
  • draws strength from the hope of life after life

Because Lent actually is not a season for its own sake, but for the sake of preparing our hearts and souls for Easter (much like Advent is not really for the sake of Advent, but as a preparation for Christmas), join us through Lent on Zoom (links will be available in weekly parish emails and here on our website) at 7:00 PM beginning on February 24 as we prepare for a Resurrection Shaped Life. (We will gather in person if/when rates of COVID infection decline sufficiently.)
