Scripture Series: Our Lenten Journey Toward Conversion of Heart
March 8 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm
Tuesdays March 8th-29th from 7-8:30p.m. led by Dr. Cathy Cory, Professor Emerita of Theology, University of St. Thomas. We will also have a 5th pre-recorded session to send participants on Tues., April 5th.
We often think of Lent as a time of repentance and reconciliation, but another fitting image for the Lenten season is journey. Journeying is a process filled with promises of new opportunities which also recognizes that we face challenges along the way. Our spiritual journey is similar, except that the movement is internal. Especially now in these often-chaotic times, our spiritual journey requires deep reflection and a conversion of heart to deal with the challenges brought on by current cultural and religious divides, economic challenges at home and work, worries about our health and the health of loved ones, and uncertainty about what the future will bring.
This five-part series will focus on parts of the Gospel of Luke, which has forgiveness as one of its central themes, and parts of the Book of Isaiah, with its calls to conversion and promises of salvation during and after the Babylonian Exile, a second Exodus for God’s people. Hopefully our reflection on these scripture texts will give us food for thought about how we make our own spiritual journey toward fullness of life, when we can again sing “Alleluia” to the Risen Savior. No prior knowledge of the Bible is required to participate.
This series will be offered both in-person and live via Zoom. All registrants will receive the Zoom recording.
