During the season of Lent, and beginning the week of March 10, our small groups launched a 5-week study series we’re calling Jesus Set His Face: In View of Eternity and Mortality. It’s not too late to jump in!
At the center of who Jesus is, and at the very heart of the person and work of Jesus, we have the miracle of the incarnation. God and man come together, fully, completely, miraculously. Divine-human. Spirit-truth. Transcendent-immanent. Teacher-healer. One who lived his life, at once, in view of eternity and in view of mortality.
Each week of Lent, we’re exploring the biblical and theological implications of eternity and mortality, and we’ll do so by using many voices from both the lectionary readings and Sunday teachings. These tools will help us describe then define who we are and what we do in the right now: For who we are and what we do is critically important when it comes to God’s purposes for the world and the Kingdom now. But there’s more: Who we are and what we do now also has critically important implications beyond our lifetime.
One more important note: The series includes the lectionary readings for Lent, so we’ll also have an opportunity for discuss further the things Pastor Chris teaches in the Sunday worship service. If you’d like you can get a head start on meditating on these topics just click here for a handy website that lists all the lectionary passages.
We have four small group days/times to choose from:
Mondays at 7 PM: The Epiclesis Chapter House (Old Fair Oaks Village)
Wednesdays at 7 PM: Covell’s home (Orangevale) (Email for info).
About the Logo for this Study: The design we’re using for the logo for this series is by artist Lance Brown, the “speed painter.” Colorblind Christian Lance Brown (right) portrays a powerful message through every Christian speed painting he does during his live performance art. Each stunning piece of artwork takes less than 6 minutes to complete. Some are even painted upside down, revealing the true masterpiece when turned over at the end.
