Beginning Wednesday February 21st, we will have a weekly Lenten journey here at Grace. This event is for all ages. We will gather for a meal at 6:00 pm. Then we will have a study time with separate groups for children, youth, and adults. The evening concludes by 7:30 pm. Our study this year is entitled, What Makes a Hero?
Here is the description.
This study offers us an image of what it looks like to be victorious over trials and temptations. Looking at pop culture heroes and others through the lens of faith, Matt Rawle shows how Jesus turned the concept of hero on its head. In keeping with his theme, “Pop in Culture,” the book examines how good vs. evil, right vs. wrong, and overcoming adversity are fundamental to how Christians understand salvation. Heroes help us discern the good, fight for what’s right, define identity, execute justice, spark revolution, and save lives.
Rawle enters the Gospel story to tell quite a different victory story—one obtained through humility, obedience to the cross, and an empty tomb. How does Jesus redefine what it means to be a hero?
