IDEAL FOR LENT 2017 - or any time

An ecumenical course in five sessions written by Canon John Young comprising course booklet, CD and transcript; ideal for Lent, yet not Lent-specific.

‘To all who received him … he gave power to become children of God.’ (John 1.12.)

This 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 God’?

In a 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 course booklet includes a good selection of questions at the end of each of the five sessions, designed to stimulate wide-ranging discussion.

The participants on the course CD are:Bishop Nick Baines, Margaret Sentamu and Revd Dr Ken Howcroft with RC Theologian Theodora Hawksley providing the Closing Reflection at the end of each session.
