Lent Talks: "Why life hurts..."
7.30pm on Mondays February 23, March 2, 9, 16 at Wetherby Methodist Church
Rev Dr Sally Nelson, until recently the minister of Wetherby Baptist Church, will be giving four talks during Lent.
February 23: Big Story, little story (Mark 1:40 to 2:17) Why did Jesus heal some people and not others, and why did he keep it quiet? This story may show us more about ourselves than we ever wanted to know....
March 2: Our deepest need (Mark 6: 1-13 and 30-44) The feeding that wasn't for the 5000 and a bit more about the Big Story.
March 9: The great exchange (Disability and healing in John 5 and 9) From one pool to another: Bethesda to Siloam.
March 16: If necessary, use words (1Corinthians 1:10 -2:10) We preach Christ crucified - scandalous then and now!
These talks promise to be both challenging and inspirational, so do try to get along to as many as you can, and encourage others to do so, too.
