"Hearing Our Ancestors' Word Anew"

This Lenten Lectionary Workshop will focus on the Psalter and Old Testament Lessons (while not ignoring the Gospel and Epistle Lessons). Participants are encouraged to bring their own insights and questions as we discern the claims of Scripture for this Lenten season. Topics will include traditional Lenten themes such as sin, repentance and grace, and timely considerations such as creation, covenant and chosenness. For example, what does it mean that as human creatures our vocation in relation to the earth is "to serve and preserve it" (Genesis 2:15, First Sunday in Lent)? And, what does it mean as children of Abraham to be a blessing to "all the families of the earth" (Genesis 12:3, Second Sunday in Lent)?
