Lent Course

SUNDAY EVENINGS 6 for 6:30—8.00pm  Tea, coffee and cake served from 6.00pm

 ANOTHER STORY MUST BEGIN:

         A LENT COURSE BASED ON LES MISERABLES.

                           “Grace Can Change us”

Written by Jonathan Meyer and adapted for use by the people of St John’s through Lent 2019.

Seen the TV series?   .....   Watched the film?  .....  Heard the music?  .....   Been to the show?  .....  Read the book?  .....  None of the above?

Les Miserables is a powerful story of human dreams, human failings and the working of grace in human lives. There is a message to be found for everyone.

Clips from the film will be shown and music from the soundtrack heard. Through the Bible, prayer and discussion, we hope to explore the workings of God’s grace in our own lives and the hope of that grace for our world.

SUNDAY 10th March: Fantine and Cosette.  Dreaming of a kinder world.

           Would a kinder world make us better people?

SUNDAY 17th March: The Bishop.  Saint? Or Fool? Or Both?

           How does God’s grace change the people we are and the way we relate to others?

SUNDAY 24th MARCH: Jean Valjean.  Beyond hope and help?

When we ourselves come to the conclusion that we are worth less and beyond God’s help, can God ‘get through” to us?

SUNDAY 31ST MARCH- NO MEETING

SUNDAY 7TH APRIL: Inspector Javert.  Beyond hope and help?

When we come to the conclusion that others are worthless and beyond saving, can God “get through” to us?

SUNDAY 14TH APRIL: Redemption and Salvation.  “Bring Us Home.”

In the face of so much evil, chaos and suffering in the world, is there hope and grace for humanity?
