What it means to be a disciple in today’s world is the focus of our newly published Rhythm of Life 2023 Lent course.
Consisting of five sessions, the course includes a mixture of online materials and videos, which are designed to be used by parishes.
Lenten themes, combined with some key issues, including Poverty, Racism and the Environment will be explored by those participating in the course. It will also provide an opportunity to engage with the Rhythm of Life areas for deepening commitment: praying, encouraging, sharing, reflecting, celebrating, resting and creating.
The Revd Andrew Norman, Director of Ministry and Mission for the diocese, said: “‘Our Lent Course is a great opportunity for taking a fresh look at our rhythms of life.
“But it’s not just about us. Our eyes will be drawn to some of the most challenging issues facing society today, as we journey with Jesus – and one another – through Lent.”
The Rt Revd Tony Robinson, Bishop of Wakefield, said: “I want to encourage your parish to think about using our Rhythm of Life Lent Course in 2023.
“It has been specifically written so that we might journey with Jesus through Lent. Jesus should be at the centre of our lives and I hope through this course, as you journey with Jesus, you will come to know Jesus’ own rhythms of grace throughout Lent.”
For those wanting to take their engagement with the Rhythm of Life even further, there will also be Episcopal Area retreats taking place during Lent. More information about these retreats will be released in due course.
