Lent Course

Stratford Churches Together             Lent Course

The Revd. Canon Andrew Dow from Holy Trinity will be leading the Stratford Churches Together 2018 Lent Course on the Book of Revelation.    Here he gives us a preview.

“We are living in troubled times. The threat of international terrorism on our own doorstep, and nuclear conflict in the Far East;  the rapid spread of internet fraud, and concern over the implications of Brexit;  the current social and ethical revolution bewildering in its pace—these are just some of the issues raising the level of fear and insecurity in our nation, persecution, or mere marginalisation  - together with the Christ it claims to represent? And will Christ and his Church one day be publicly vindicated?

Pressing questions, and fortunately for Christians there is one book in the Bible that was penned specifically to address them: The Book of Revelation.

In just five sessions we cannot hope to cover the whole book in detail, but we shall explore some of the major themes.

The course, to be held in St. Andrew’s Shottery, runs for five consecutive Wednesdays—21st February to 21st March inclusive, beginning at 7.30pm.  There will be a course fee of £10 to cover expenses and course materials.  It is essential to book, by contacting Margaret Spencer in the Parish Office—01789 293381—st.andrewschurch@btinternet.com

Four years ago the Stratford Together Lent Course crammed St. Andrew’s with more than 100 people from many different local churches  – worshipping and learning        together from the Bible—united and truly uplifting.  Let’s see if we can do the same in 2018 and thereby prepare ourselves for an Easter celebration;  filled with new hope, of Christ's Passion and triumph!”  

 

Andrew Dow.
