Lent in Plain Sight

March 16, 2022

 

God is often at work through the ordinary: ordinary people, ordinary objects, ordinary grace. Through the ordinary, God communicates epiphanies, salvation, revelation, and reconciliation. It is through the mundane that we hear God’s quiet voice.

Our guide through the season of Lent will be Jill J. Duffield, pastor and former editor of The Presbyterian Outlook. Duffield draws our attention to ten ordinary objects that Jesus would have encountered on his way to Jerusalem: dust, bread, the cross, coins, shoes, oil, coats, towels, thorns, and stones. In each object, we will
find meaning in the biblical account of Jesus’ final days. From Ash Wednesday to Easter, Lent in Plain Sightinvites us to open ourselves to the realm of God. Cost: $12.50. The books are also available on Kindle for $9.50.

Sundays in the Library at 9 a.m. (Capacity: Twenty w/ Facemasks)
