Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
As promised in my recent letter, I write to share the news of our Benefice Lent Course for 2021.
With our parishes and the country still in lockdown a ZOOM Lent Course is planned. The Ministry Team has chosen the book “A Cross in the Heart of God” – “Reflections on the death of Jesus” by Samuel Wells as a book we can read and study together. The plan is to hold seven ZOOM meetings on a Thursday evening, starting at 7 pm, each one led by a member of the Ministry Team. The dates are:
1st April (Maundy Thursday)
Very helpfully the book sets out a weekly study guide for each chapter being followed with questions etc.
If you would like to join this Lent Course, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will ensure you receive a ZOOM link to join the meeting on the 18th February when the first chapter of the book will be discussed. The book can be easily obtained from booksellers (published by Canterbury Press ISBN 978-1-78622-293-0).
Let’s Talk Loneliness webinar
Via Archdeacon Nick Shutt, Chris and Hannah from Transforming Plymouth Together, have asked that I forward details to you of a Let’s Talk Loneliness webinar – link below to book – which they are hosting with Linking Lives to talk about the ‘Two’s Company’ scheme of partnering people with those who are isolated or lonely.
A request for help
A request for help from Mary (Churchwarden) at Tavistock. We are looking at the best way of delivering a Palm Cross to members of our congregation this year. If you can help, please speak to Mary on 01822 481179 or email email@example.com Thank you.
Please continue to stay and well
With my best wishes,
Yours, as ever
