Lent 2022 - Baggage and Treasures
The idea behind this course is to explore what gifts and ministries the local church has; its strengths and weaknesses as it relates to growth and mission.
- What are our local church's treasures?
- What can we discard as baggage?
It moves to two important challenges
- If God sees me as an earthen vessel, what is the Treasure I transport?
- The last session invites the participants to take a new step forward together.
This will compliment Living Ely 2025 and will enable congregations to think about the life of the local church. This is such a helpful resource as we move away from the recent pandemic and begin to think about the implications of the pandemic on our life and witness.
Originally written as a BBC Radio Stoke Lent course in 1999 by Clifford Owen it will updated for our use. Clifford now lives in Huntingdon and in 2012 retired from the Anglican Chaplaincy in Oostende and Brugge, Belgium..
The updated course will be available in December (2021) but if you would like to see the original text, it can be viewed here.
