Lent Course 2019: The Prophetic Voice of India
This year's Lent Course runs on Wednesday evenings, from 13th March to 10th April. We meet in the Lounge at Hanover at 7.30pm, and will finish by 9.15pm.
The United Society for the Propagation of the Gospel has produced a free booklet that we'll be using, in we which we listen to and reflect upon the prophetic voice from India. Each evening will consider a different theme.
The five-week study course looks at the radical nature of the gospel, with a special focus on the church in India.
"We might think the prophetic voice belongs to the Old Testament, but we want to show there are still many prophets to be found throughout the world church today.
"The prophets’ voices are challenging because they alert us to issues we might want to ignore - they call us to be like Jesus, who stood on the margins, comforting the oppressed and challenging those who are comfortable."
