Lent 2020

Lent invites us to make our minds and hearts ready for remembering Jesus’ life, death and resurrection. There are lots of resources available to help us as we prepare.

This year, Lent begins on Wednesday 26 February and we have recommendations that we’ve love to share. Our Lent Book and Lent Reflections recommendations are below.

Lent Book

The Ruthless Elimination of Hurry: How to stay emotionally healthy and spiritually alive in the chaos of the modern world  by John Mark Comer

Following the two most recent evening teaching series on Emotionally Healthy Spirituality and Practicing the Way,  we think this particular book has a lot to say on these issues.

“Too often we treat the symptoms of toxicity in our modern world instead of trying to pinpoint the cause. A growing number of voices are pointing at hurry, or busyness as a root of much evil. Within the pages of this book, you’ll find a compelling emotional and spiritual case against hurry and in favour of a slower, simpler way of life.”

We’re running 4 evening sessions during Lent, on silence – one of the practises in the book. More info on the sessions here

Lent Reflections

#LiveLent: Care for God’s Creation is the Church of England’s Lent campaign for 2020.

With weekly themes shaped around the first Genesis account of creation, it explores the urgent need for humans to value and protect the abundance God has created. This year’s #LiveLent challenge offers 40 short reflections and suggested actions to help us live in greater harmony with God, neighbour and nature.
