Lenten Resource for 2017
Coromandel Valley UC in Adelaide have provided a Lenten resource for this year based on the book of Romans.
This Lenten devotional will focus on chapters 5-8. This is not to say the rest of the book is not a fine feast but for the sake of our 40 day consumption in Lent, its all we can adequately digest. Before you read each day, pray for openness to hear the Living God in the readings. These devotions, written by various members of Coro Uniting are given not as an end in themselves but as a doorway to further prayer and reflection on your life in God. We encourage you not to rush it. Give yourself 30 minutes a day if you can.
Please note: Each Sunday is intentionally left blank as a word will be shared at the worship service at CVUC and people encouraged to write their own notes from the material provided at this time. You may like to prepare your own reflection for the particular Sundays in Lent.
11-13 September 2017, at Mount Louisa House of Praise, Townsville.
Over the Easter period the community enjoys a holiday weekend. While the commercial world trivialises Easter, for Christian people Christ’s death and resurrection are central in human history. The Easter events free us from death and enable us to face the future with confidence. This great festival of the Christian faith needs to be publicly celebrated with enthusiasm. Here are some suggestions for Easter 2017 from Rev. E.A. Curnow.
