At once the Spirit sent him out into the wilderness, and he was in the wilderness forty days, being tempted by Satan. He was with the wild animals, and angels attended him.

Getting Closer to God

During the season of Lent we can spend extra time getting closer to God. Our sermon series, which began on Sunday 11th February, will help us to do this. The five topics are these:

1. Seeing God (11th Feb)

Imagining God (catching glimpses of God in creation, in religion and in pain)

2. God and Me (18th Feb)

Imagining Our Self (knowing who we really are, warts and all)

3. Talking with God (25th Feb)

Learning to Pay Attention (to the visible - meditation; to the invisible - contemplation)

4. The Only Way is Up (3rd Mar)

Treading the Dark Path (becoming utterly dependent on God)

5. One with God (17th Mar)

Each week there is a sheet in church for you to take home and keep. On it you will find sermon notes from both churches, 3 questions for you to ponder, and a space for you to write or draw anything you like in response to those questions. These sheets are being used each week at the Lent Groups on Wednesdays and Thursdays, so bring them with you.

Instead of keeping these sheets you could hand your reflections back to me. This is because, in Holy Week on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Maundy Thursday and Easter Eve, I will preach again on each of the subjects, feeding in any feedback I receive from you, so that we can all reflect further together.

Then, after Easter, we shall take names for our Whole Day with God at St Mary’s Convent in Wantage. Please put this date in your diary now! – SATURDAY 6th JULY

During this day we will spend time on the first three topics – Seeing God, God and Me, Talking with God – in a beautiful and peaceful place, taking time to become more conscious of the presence of God with us.

With love and best wishes,
