Gwyneth's March Letter
28 Feb 17
“March brings breezes loud and shrill to stir the dancing daffodil.”
By Sara Coleridge from “The Garden Year” 1834
The earth is waking and so should we. Easter is a little later this year but before then we have Lent- I’m always glad when Lent is over and yet it is a time for us to meditate and be thankful- reflecting on the enormous sacrifice that Jesus underwent for all our miserable sins.
Although I never enjoy Lent, it is something as Christians that we have to do. This Lent I shall be leading a weekly Lent group, starting on 9th February, and we will be reflecting on the “York” course on the theme of “Receiving Christ in five different ways,” by canon John Young. The course CD brings the opinions and thoughts of leading Christian thinkers into our discussion group.
The course is intended to be used in tandem with a course booklet, five of which are available to buy or just borrow. They are optional as is the discussion and you are welcome to just come and listen if you prefer.
I hope you can join me this Lent and help me to get through this Lenten time and come out at the other end to enjoy Easter.
