LENTEN STUDY GROUPS 2020

“How can we imagine the gracious, compassionate love of God for the created world?  ‘The whole creation is groaning in labor pains until now,’ we read in the New Testament.  Creation waits to be set free from its bondage to decay in order to share in the glorious freedom of the children of God, who are themselves groaning while waiting in hope for the redemption of their bodies (Romans 8:18 – 25).

Many Theologians have written of human redemption, but how in our day can we understand cosmic redemption? At a time of advancing ecological devastation, what would it mean to rediscover this biblical sense of the natural world groaning, hoping, waiting for liberation?  What would it mean for the churches’ understanding, practice, and prayer to open the core Christian belief in salvation to include all created beings?”

So begins the book, Creation and the Cross, The Mercy of God for a Planet in Peril by Elizabeth Johnson. This text will be the focus of our Lenten Discussion groups that will begin the first week of March.  Matthew Miller will lead a group at noon on Tuesdays, and Stephanie and Libby will lead a group Wednesdays at 5:30pm in the Kerygma Room.
