Lent Course 2009
Lentwise: Spiritual Essentials for Real Life
by Paula Gooder

A five-session course which helps us to deal with the rigours of real life. Using fresh ingredients from John's Gospel, it explores: direction, nourishment, wisdom, refreshment and security. Each session focuses on one spiritual essential. Paula Gooder is well known as a New Testament theologian and her work is always refreshing and challenging. She lives in Birmingham and often speaks at Diocesan events. The sessions are on Tuesdays at 2.00pm in church, repeated at 7.30pm at the Vicarage. The dates are March 3rd, 10th, 17th, 24th and 31st. All are welcome. To book a place on the course or for more details please contact the Vicar.
