Fancy some pancakes… and temptation…

As we head towards Lent we invite you to be tempted by some pancakes in our Pancakes and Temptation services on February 27 at St George’s, Badshot Lea, at 10am, and St Mark’s, Upper Hale, at 11am.

On the Sunday before Shrove Tuesday – the day before Lent – we like to make pancakes in church and think about the season ahead of us. It’s a sociable occasion but with a message. We celebrate with pancakes, but the Lenten season ahead of us is one when we reflect and prepare for Easter and the service will draw attention to this too.

This Lent we are looking at the theme of forgiveness. Further details are available here.

Forgiveness

This year, during Lent, we are going to take a look at the subject of forgiveness and be asking some in-depth questions, such as:

  • What is forgiveness?
  • Do others need to repent before we forgive them?
  • Is resentment a bad thing?
  • Is forgiveness sometimes impossible?

The course will be run by the clergy, and Michelle Chapman will be running a family course.

We won’t be following a book; instead there will be a booklet with questions and a list of optional resources which you might or might not wish to engage with. It will be quite possible to take part in the course without looking at any of the other resources.

Please let Alan know if you would like to be part of a Lent Course this year, either online or in person, and what days or evenings are good for you.  Also, please let him know if you would be willing to host a meeting.
