"Lent with the Beloved Disciple" - Wednesday, February 21, 2024
Thinking about Lent? Join the diocesan Lenten book study.
We'll be looking at Bishop Michael Marshall's, Lent with the Beloved Disciple.
About the book: As the only disciple to have stayed close to Jesus at every stage from the Last Supper to the Crucifixion at Calvary, this eagle-eyed eyewitness intentionally records certain subtle details and signs which, when perceived with the eyes of faith, indicate a deeper and far lasting significance.
About the author: Bishop Michael Marshall has authored many books from his earliest days as Vicar of All Saints Margaret Street, London and subsequently when he was appointed Bishop of Woolwich at the age of 39. In 1984, he moved to the USA as the Founding Director of the Anglican Institute. In 1992, he was appointed as one of the Advisors to the Archbishops of York and Canterbury for the Decade of Evangelism.
The series starts on Wednesday, January 21, 2024, and runs for 6 sessions (until March 27, 2024) at 6:30PM for 60-90mins. Registration is required for the Zoom link. Participants will receive the reading schedule (about 20pg/wk). The Synod Office has limited copies which can be purchased when registering. Alternatively, please purchase the book through your favourite book retailer.

As part of the admission procedure in the hospital where I work, I ask the patients if they are allergic to anything. If they are, I print it on an allergy band placed on the patient's wrists.
Once when I asked an elderly woman if she had any allergies, she said she couldn't eat bananas.
Imagine my surprise when, several hours later, a very irate son came out to the nurse station demanding, "Who's responsible for labeling my mother 'bananas'?"
