“During Lent you have the opportunity to think about your life alongside the life of Jesus, inviting inward transformation and then outward action.”

As we begin again this holy season of preparation and reflection, I hope you will consider joining one of the small groups at church that will be studying Amy-Jill Levine’s book, Entering the Passion of Jesus. Humbly billed as “a beginner’s guide to Holy week,” it is a rich and refreshing perspective on these familiar but difficult events. Professor Levine, a Jewish scholar of the New Testament, provides deep historical grounding of the text that also highlights the profound risks taken by those in the stories, and invites us into some risk taking of our own. When have we fallen asleep instead of acting faithfully? What would we risk our lives for? How do we find community with God and others after we have broken trust with those we love?

This study will be a wonderful companion to the Holy Week in Slow-Mo sermon series, and is a great opportunity to spend time with these texts that we often retell during Holy Week worship services when many people are traveling or working or otherwise unable to participate in communal reflection on them. The Study runs for 6-weeks and books are available online or from Jen. Everyone who wants to participate is welcome to a book at no cost and they are $9 for anyone who would like to purchase one. Sign up by contacting Jen!
