This year for Lent we are experimenting with a parish-wide discipline by asking the whole church to participate in the program Meeting Jesus in the Gospel of John, a Bible study that focuses on the Gospel of John and 1 John. This program was designed by The Society of St. John the Evangelist and the Center for the Ministry of Teaching at Virginia Theological Seminary.
During Lent, we will create small groups that will use the curriculum set up in Meeting Jesus in the Gospel of John. We are a large church, and small groups are one important way to learn the stories of the people in the pew beside you. Groups will have a trained facilitator and will meet weekly for five consecutive weeks to discuss that week’s scripture and to engage in communal reflection.
Thanks to everyone who signed up for small groups – we have over 100 participants! Registration is now closed.
Regardless of your ability to join a small group, everyone is invited to register at www.meetingjesusinjohn.org to receive a link every day during Lent with a video for reflection. Journals are also available for download or by emailing Mother Erin at firstname.lastname@example.org.
