Lenten Bible Study
For the 2017 Lenten season, plans are to focus on Christianity’s most famous prayer,
We will be using John Dominic Crossan, The Greatest Prayer:
Rediscovering the Revolutionary Message of the Lord’s Prayer. New York: HarperCollins, 2011.
It is a prayer that we say together every Sunday in our worship together.
Moreover, it is a prayer that most of us know by heart and one we carry with us
wherever we go. Nevertheless, familiarity can have its negatives, the main one assuming
we know the spiritual depths our Lord is affirming in this model for prayer.
Cost for the book is $11.00. See Bill Kneebone for a copy.
The remaining sessions in the Ladies Parlor will run from
Wednesday, March 8 to Wednesday, April 5 at 2:00 P.M.
There has been some interest in forming a small choir for our church to possibly
sing on special occasions or even once a month. The best news is that Cathy,
our organist, is interested too!
We would not be doing the Messiah (at least to start), but do some very simple things.
To start, we might sing four-part harmony of some familiar hymns from the hymnal.
Practices would probably be before church on Sundays.
You do NOT have to be an opera singer or even read music.
All that is required is an interest....and some ability to carry a tune!
If you are intrigued by this possibility, please let Cathy or George know.
