A NEW COURSE NOW IN STOCK
IDEAL FOR LENT 2017
"It is good to see that over the years the York Course has not become predictable or stale."
Church Times review February 2017
ecumenical course in five sessions written by Canon John Young
comprising course booklet, CD and transcript; ideal for Lent, yet not
‘To all who received him … he gave power to become children of God.’ (John 1.12.)
raises big questions. Aren’t we all children of God anyway? Just how can
we receive Christ? And what does it mean to have ‘a relationship with
course crammed with discussable questions, John Young teases out from
the New Testament at least three different ways in which we receive
Christ. John’s course booklet is supplemented by four leading
Christians, from a variety of backgrounds, on the course CD. Together
they demonstrate that St John’s theology in his magisterial Gospel has
very practical implications for our day-to-day lives.
Session 1: Receiving Christ: as children of God
Session 2: Receiving Christ: in the stranger and the needy
Session 3: Receiving Christ: in Holy Communion
Session 4: Receiving Christ: through prayer and fellowship
Session 5: ‘Christ in you, the hope of glory’ (Colossians 1.27)
The participants on the course CD are Bishop Nick Baines, Margaret Sentamu Revd Dr Ken Howcroft.
Theodora Hawksley provides the Closing Reflection at the end of each session.
The Taster Pack comprises 1 course booklet, 1 CD and 1 Transcript.
The course booklet includes a good selection of questions at the end of
each of the five sessions, designed to stimulate wide-ranging
discussion. Each group needs 1 CD, and group members will benefit from
having their own personal copy of the course booklet. In addition many
groups find the transcript booklet, which sets out the words as spoken
on the CD, invaluable.
