New Adult Faith Formation Series
Our discussion book for the six Sundays of Lent will be Amy-Jill Levine’s “Entering the Passion of Jesus”. This book takes us deep into the history of the last days before the crucifixion, and is also the inspiration for our Lenten worship series this year.
Jesus risked his reputation when he entered Jerusalem in a victory parade. He risked his life when he dared to teach in the Temple. His followers risked everything when they left behind their homes, or anointed him with costly perfume. We take risks as we read and re-read these stories, finding new meanings and new challenges.
In “Entering the Passion of Jesus: A Beginner’s Guide to Holy Week,” author, professor, and biblical scholar Amy-Jill Levine explores the biblical texts surrounding the Passion story. She shows us how the text raises ethical and spiritual questions for the reader, and how we all face risk in our Christian experience.
Please join us for this rich and challenging learning experience!
