Yesterday was the start of the Season of Lent, marked by a Eucharist service in the evening where those attending received the sign of the cross in ash on their forehead, as a sign of the spirit of penitence. During this season of self-examination & reflection on our spiritual lives, Andrea has offered the book ‘Lent for everyone’ by Tom Wright based around readings from Luke’s gospel. There will be an opportunity to discuss this material over the coming weeks, after the Thursday morning Eucharist.
The Soul Keeping course on a Wednesday evening also continues fortnightly with 2 more sessions remaining. It has been a good experience to get to know folk from St James Bishopbriggs & share thoughts and discussion on the journey of faith.
