Lent Workshops, Wilson Room Ewhurst
The Jesus I Never Knew
Tues 5, 12, 19, 26, March, April 2, 9, 7.30 - 9.30pm

Everyone, whether they attend church or not, is very welcome to come to a series of talks and discussions on the topic of ‘The Jesus I Never Knew’. The talks will be held during the period of Lent, beginning on Tuesday 5 March at 7.30pm in the Wilson Room at Ewhurst. Based on the book by Philip Yancey the talks offer a new and different perspective on the life of Christ and his work - his teaching, his miracles, his death and resurrection - and ultimately, who he was and why he came. The first talk addresses possible misconceptions about Jesus physical appearance (probably not tall and gaunt, based on what we know today of people of the time!), then moves onto his character, and his interactions with people and his disciples. Our preconceived notions about who Jesus was and is are questioned thereby leading to greater knowledge and understanding. Please let Liz in the parish office know if you would like to attend these talks.
