A Lenten course for the Anglican Communion

A Lenten course for the Anglican Communion

This project of the Anglican Communion Office looks interesting:

“And it was good ….” – a Communion wide Lent course for 2012

ACNS: Anglican Communion News Service

The Fifth Mark of Mission – “to strive to safeguard the integrity of creation and sustain and renew the life of the earth” – is sometimes seen as the neglected Mark across the Communion. Lent next year offers another opportunity to redress this, with the help of a course coming out of the work of the Bible in the Life of the Church project.

The five-week course will enable individuals and groups to engage with a Bible-wide range of scriptural passages that speak of our responsibilities in relation to the environment. It will also offer reflections on how Anglicans in different parts of the Communion engage with the Bible with discussion questions that challenge our thinking and behaviour.

The course will be available both on the web, and available as booklet. It will be available before Advent 2011 but, you will be able to sample the course on line during September, and order booklets for use in 2012.

The Anglican Communion Standing Committee highly recommended this course at their meeting earlier this year. Look out for it!

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
