Our Lenten Study this year will be “The Mystery of Everything”. It is a new and original Lent course by Hilary Brand, based on the multi-award winning film about Stephen Hawking, “The Theory of Everything”. The course explores ways in which the mysteries of the universe and of everyday life can reinvigorate our faith and spiritual journey.
The course focuses on: the experience of wonder; the enigma of weakness; the complexity of relationships; human frailty; and the hope beyond brokenness. Each session includes an extract from the film, scripture references, and group discussion questions.
Hilary Brand is a Church of England freelance writer. She is the author of four other very popular Lenten courses. She has also written works of fiction for children and young teens, and other non-fiction for adults.
We will view the movie “The Theory of Everything” on Wednesday, February 17, beginning at 6:00 pm. Food will be provided. Both the Rite 13 class and the adult study class will participate. The Lenten Study will continue to meet for an hour on Wednesdays starting at 6:00 pm during Lent. The dates are: February 24, March 2, 9 and 16. Everyone is invited!
