Lenten Study: Exploring our Faith

This Lent we will have a series in worship and in discussion groups about what our faith means to us and how do we express it. This is a wide open inquiry that is looking for no right answers, but really digging into how each one of us understands our faith. We will look at our preconceived notions, our stumbling blocks, old ways of believing that may not work for us, new ways we’d like to explore.

We would like as many people as possible to participate in this exploration. We will pair up weekly workshops with our themes in worship.

These are some of the questions we will explore in our upcoming study:
• What does it mean to have faith?
• What is faith?
• How and why do we express it? 
• What do God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit mean to me?
• What baggage do I carry with me about any of these ideas?
• What do I need to let go of?
• What do I need to grow into?
• and other questions you may bring

One of the end results of this study is that we may come up with our own expressions of faith – whether in words, drawing, painting or music – that help us articulate where our faith is at this moment in time.

This promises to be a rewarding study for all of us and I hope you will come try it out Sundays after worship 12:30-2pm in the Parlor through April 14.
Weekday sessions will be held on Tuesdays at 9am in the Deepening Room through April 16.
