Lenten Book Study and Small Groups 2022

We are so glad you would like to join a small group at Southminster during the season of Lent! This season we are offering two ways to be involved with the Southminster Community.

First, we'll have a book study from Vanderbilt University Professor of New Testament and Jewish Studies Amy Jill Levine, Entering the Passion of Jesus: A Beginner's Guide to Holy Week. This study explores the biblical texts surrounding the Passion story. She shows us how the text raises ethical and spiritual questions for the reader, and how we all face risk in our Christian experience. Steve Davis will be leading this book study on Sundays after worship from 11:15-12:15 p.m.

Also, we have a new devotional from A Sanctified Art called, "Full To The Brim: An Expansive Lent." There are four entries for each week of Lent and the devotionals also come with daily devotional cards to deepen your spiritual practices during Lent.

A Sanctified Art’s Lenten theme, Full to the Brim, is an invitation—into a radically different Lent, into a full life. It’s an invitation to be authentically who you are, to counter scarcity and injustice at every turn, to pour out even more grace wherever it is needed. When we allow ourselves to be filled to the brim with God’s lavish love, that love spills over. It reaches beyond ourselves; like water, it rushes and flows, touching everything in its path.
Full to the Brim reminds us to live fully—as we pursue justice and hope, or express grief and gratitude. And so, this Lent, let us trust—fully—that we belong to God. Let us increase our capacity to receive and give grace. Let us discover the expansive life God dreams for us.
Artfully yours,
The Sanctified Art Creative Team
