Lent Study Course: Pathways to Prayer

We have entered the Season of Lent.

Lent is about getting out of ourselves and into the heart of Christ. We seek to be conformed to his image, loving as he loves and sharing in his dying and rising.

We pray. We fast. We give to the poor. Not out of guilt or as a programme for self-improvement. It is a way to follow the Christ and to live in union with him, who emptied himself and gave himself for the life of the world.

Nous sommes entrés dans le Carême.   C’est la saison pour sortir de nous-mêmes et pour entrer plus profondément dans le cœur du Christ. Nous cherchons à nous conformer à son image, à aimer comme il aime et à participer à sa mort et sa résurrection.

Nous prions. Nous jeûnons. Nous faisons l’aumône.  Pas par culpabilité ou comme programme de développement personnel. C’est une manière de suivre le Christ et de vivre en union avec lui, qui s’est vidé et s’est donné pour la vie du monde.

February 25    In praise of doubt

Have you ever considered that doubt can be a pathway to prayer? Maybe you’ve always thought that a strong faith was a necessary pre-condition to prayer… and somehow the presence of doubt disqualifies you from praying well. Join us on Thursday – and think again.
