Lent has begun and one of the ways we have often tried to mark Lent is by following a series of Lent studies. We can’t meet together for that this year but Brian Parfitt has prepared a set of five studies which can be used by homegroups meeting on Zoom, by messaging on email or over the phone or by individuals on their own.
There is a study a week for the weeks of Lent 1-5, beginning this week. They call us to Celebrate! and focus on a group of Psalms (Psalms 113-118) known as the ‘Hallel’ because they call people to ‘Hallelujah’ – ‘Praise the Lord’, which were used at Jewish festivals, especially Passover. They remind us of God’s greatness and goodness – a good reminder to us as we continue to battle Covid-19. They also have some real glimpses looking forward to Jesus’ death and resurrection and so will help us prepare for Holy Week and Easter.
If anyone would like to join a group just for Lent please contact Brian- email@example.com or phone 02380 447962.
