Lent 2024

Lent 2024

Lent 2024

The season of Lent is 40 days (not including Sundays). Forty is symbolic of the time “in between,” the journey to God, the time it takes for us to see that God is already with us. During our 40 days of Lent, we remember the spaces of our lives “in between,” the times of our communal wilderness and uncertainty, and the times we long for new life. This year, we gather to experience the wilderness times in the here-and-now. Join us on the journey.

During the Lent/Easter cycle, our gatherings will focus on the theme A Place for All. We will explore how the text or activity calls us to partner with God in building “a place” on earth to best live out God’s vision in our lives and in the church. Join us for this exploration as we see how this theme opens us to better understand God and ourselves.

Lent/Easter Bible Study

A Place for Learning: Countering Antisemitic and Supersessionism Interpretations 

We will introduce and explore common Christian themes and perspectives on prophetic language, Pharisee’s and other Jewish leaders, Jesus and Jewish Law in the Gospels, and the historical setting of the Gospels in ways that have been problematic and harmful to our Jewish neighbors. In turn, we will be offering new ways that will build a better and more authentic understanding and interpretation. Please contact Seminarian Nicholas (nicholas.breining@lstc.edu) with any questions or to learn more.

  • Sunday, March 17 (11:30 a.m. -12:30 p.m.)
