What It Means to Live in Covenant With God
Sunday Mornings - 10:10-11am
February 3 & 10; March 3, 10, & 24
During Lent we will explore how we are called into relationship with God through covenant. Beginning with the covenant God made after the flood, setting the rainbow in the clouds as a reminder to us, we will discuss how we become God's people and how love binds us all one to another in the everlasting promise of God's grace. In the fourth eucharistic prayer there is the line, "again and again you called you into covenant with you, and through the prophets you taught us to hope for salvation." We live as a covenant people and what this means is described beautifully in the images of our own baptismal covenant. Lent is is season of journey in faith whose destination is always a stronger faith renewed in the light of hope and love which we encounter Easter morning as we celebrate Jesus resurrection. In our look into covenants of the Old Testament and the covenant established with us in Jesus, our Lenten journey will be one of renewed hope and deepening faith.
Our series is held in the Narthex from 10:10 until 11:00 am on Sunday mornings as a part of the Rector's forum (class does not meet on the 3rd Sunday of February or March).
Our Lenten programs continue on Wednesday evenings at 6:30 pm with a focus on prayer and experiencing the mystery of God. Click here for more information about Wednesday evenings in Lent.
