United Benefice Lent Course 2021

United Benefice of Shedfield and Wickham : Lent Course 2021

“Who do you say I am?”

The Easter story through the eyes of those who were there

Each session of this six-week course features a selection of Bible readings, reflections, poetry and art, inviting us to think and talk about one of the characters in the story.  Each has a different way of answering the question, “Who do you say I am?”

Revd Dr Ruth Howlett-Shipley, creator of the course, says, “I’m conscious that the idea of a Lent course will generate very different feelings in people; some of you will relish the idea of getting together (even if it can only be on Zoom) to discuss the material, but I am aware that others will prefer just to think about this on their own.  This course will work for everyone.”

Revd Ruth and Revd Jane Isaac will be hosting an online Lent Group using Zoom on Wednesdays at 2.30 – 3.30pm from 24th February to 31st March.  We would love you to join us!  For the Zoom link please get in touch with Revd Ruth (contact details at the end).

The planned sessions are:

24th February

“I don’t know this man!” : Peter

3rd March

“I’m not sure” : Thomas

10th March

“I’m scared of him” : Caiaphas

17th March

“Why should I know him?” : Pilate

24th March

“I don’t know how to love him” : Mary Magdalene

31st March

“I know this man!” : Judas

Alternatively, you may wish to arrange your own Zoom Lent Group at a time that is more suitable time for you, or you might prefer to study the material on your own.  Do let Revd Ruth know if you would like to receive a copy of the course by email or a printed version.
