Lent prayer 2018 - Ash Wednesday (14 February)

Feb
14

 

Today's prayer activity: 

Think, or talk about, the people, situations and issues that you care about – think about your friends, family, neighbours, community, country, leaders and other nations. Consider individuals, groups or nations who are on your heart and mind because they are living in poverty, or facing grief or suffering, and especially think about those who don’t know about, or haven’t yet experienced, God’s love for them.

This original and innovative Lent Course uses the film ‘Chocolat’, based on the novel by Joanne Harris, as a starting point for exploring issues about God, the world, and what it is to be human.   

The five sessions include extracts from the film, group discussion, questions, exercises, meditations, reading suggestions and Bible passages. Information also includes the curious history of chocolate, the unfair economics of chocolate and ideas for a chocolate feast!
