You are invited during Lent to enter into the Passion of Jesus
Jesus’ final days were full of risk. Every move he made was filled with anticipation, danger, and the potential for great loss or great reward.
Jesus risked his reputation when he entered Jerusalem in a victory parade. He risked his life when he dared to teach in the Temple. His followers risked everything when they left behind their homes or anointed him with costly perfume. We take risks as we read and re-read these stories, finding new meanings and new challenges.
Our Lenten Worship and Study this year will be based on the book Entering the Passion of Jesus: A Beginner’s Guide to Holy Week by Amy-Jill Levine, author, professor, and biblical scholar. We will explore the biblical texts and the ethical and spiritual questions surrounding the Passion story.
Our weekly worship on Sunday mornings and the study will center on these topics:
Week 1 Jerusalem: Risking Reputation Week 2 The Temple: Risking Righteous Anger Week 3 Teachings: Risking Challenge Week 4 The First Dinner: Risking Rejection Week 5 The Last Supper: Risking the Loss of Friends Week 6 Gethsemane: Risking Temptation
