As part of our Lent Course this year, we will be watching four of the Episodes from my In the Steps of Jesus Film Series. Filmed on location in the Holy Land back in 2016, these 15-minute videos are designed to help us all to imagine Jesus’ historic journey up to Jerusalem—walking up to the city from Jericho through the desert and over the Mount of Olives. On each evening our discussion will also include our looking at relevant passages from the Gospels—especially from Luke chapters 19-23.
On the two other Wednesdays we will, first, celebrate communion together to mark the start of Lent on Ash Wednesday and then, three weeks later, enjoy listening to passages from John’s Gospel interspersed with chorales from Bach’s St John’s Passion sung by a choir under the direction of Tim Tyler.
Please join us for as many of these evenings are you able to—as we ‘travel with Jesus to Jerusalem’.
