Lenten Adult Formation: The Acts of the Apostles with John Jenke and Paul Shoaf Kozak
What would it take to make you a great disciple?
We invite you to take a Lenten journey exploring discipleship through the eyes of the first Christian disciples. For five weeks, we embark on a pastoral study of the book of the Acts of the Apostles. This series has a two-fold purpose. First, the course intends to expand your knowledge of this unique book of Holy Scripture written by the Evangelist Luke. Second, this Lenten series will invite you to reflect on how you can deepen your Christian walk heeding Christ’s call to discipleship.
Online Lenten Group
As an integral part of our Parish's Lenten Series, Epiphany will offer its first Online Lenten Group. This offering is intended to be a supplement to the Sunday morning Adult Formation presentation, and an alternative to the Home Lenten Groups. A version of the information presented on Sunday morning (often with additional details, maps, links, etc.) will be available on the pages of the Online Lenten Group. There will be weekly questions, a forum for discussions, and an opportunity to provide feedback.
Mandalas and the Heart of God Create your own mandalas as you ponder your relationship with God this Lent. A mandala is a spiritual and ritual symbol in Hinduism and Buddhism representing the universe. Many people create mandalas as a contemplative practice to draw themselves closer to the heart of God. We will ponder scripture and explore a little sacred geometry. No math or art skills required. Bring your imagination.
