Grace's Lenten journey includes the following adult education classes that are offered Sundays at 10:00 AM in the Family Room through April 13.: “Exile and Homecoming: A Lenten Journey with the Prophet Isaiah” This study uses the theme of exile and homecoming in the book of Isaiah as a lens through which to examine biblical and contemporary experiences of sin and redemption, judgment and forgiveness. As we move toward Holy Week and Easter, we’ll make connections between Israel’s story and the death and resurrection of Jesus. The course, to be led by Pastor Lisa and members of the Adult Discipleship team, will include two video presentations by Old Testament scholar Patricia K. Tull. Sunday, March 9th, "My people do not know me…”: The Experience of Exile What does it mean to be exiled? We will explore the historical, cultural, personal and spiritual meanings of exile, both for ancient Israel and the world of today.Continue Reading »
