Lenten Discussion Series: Bishop Steve has invited the whole Diocese to share one book this Lent: Being Christian by Archbishop Rowan Williams. Tim, Vesta, and Jenny will be leading Sunday discussions on the four topics of this book: Baptism, February 22; The Bible, March 1; Eucharist, March 8; and Prayer, March 15, and we will figure out together what we want to discuss on the last two Sundays of Lent, March 22 and 29. We will be using Archbishop Williams’ short book as a resource, but feel free to participate whether or not you’ve read it. Muffet has copies in the office for $10.
