On the Third Day
A new 5-session ecumenical course for discussion groups written by Bishop John Pritchard — ideal for Lent
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'?
When — 5 Sessions: beginning at 11am Soup and Rolls will be served.
21st Feb Kingsleigh — Have I got news for you!
28th Feb Bedford — So what? The implications of the Resurrection
7th March Kingsleigh — 'Let him Easter in us'
14th March Bedford — Celebrating and praying Easter
21st March Kingsleigh — A risen Church
