“To live and to love like this is to live and to love in holy danger.”
This and so many other statements to unpack in this exploration of Wholehearted Faith, the latest text written by New York Times bestselling author, Rachel Held Evans. In her final work, Rachel explores what it means to embody an “all in” kind of faith – one that truly strives to love God with all of our hearts, minds and strength and our neighbors as ourselves. Written in her poignant but accessible style, Rachel dives deep into what faith lived out in Christian community can look like when we commit the entirety of our being to God and one another.
The Very Reverend Anne M. Maxwell and The Reverend Morgan MacIntire team up once again for a Lenten book study. We encourage small group discussion in a couple of ways: via our Facebook community (if you joined the group page for last year’s study you are already included) and by posting discussion questions and videos on our church websites. standrews.ms and www.christchurchcovington.com.
Our study began on Ash Wednesday and concludes the week of April 4th. Each Monday, we will post discussion questions as well as a video of us discussing the chapters assigned for the week. You may watch these videos and answer the questions individually OR grab a group of friends and discuss them together! Wholehearted Faith is available on Amazon in hardcopy and electronic form; order early and get ready for another great Lenten study! Questions? Email email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Very Reverend Anne M. Maxwell and The Reverend Morgan MacIntire have been friends and colleagues in ministry since 2015, when they served together on the staff of Christ Episcopal Church in Covington, Louisiana. Avid readers, they enjoy discussing their latest textual finds and have partnered to lead retreats, design formation classes, and launch creative programs and innovative liturgies. They enjoy thinking deeply about their faith and are grateful for the opportunity to share their thoughts with you this Lent.
Lenten Fast for Creation The environmental commission has created a calendar which is distributed to all of diocesan churches. The calendar features daily practices which will help us to “cultivate the care of God’s creation into our daily life and practices.”
The calendar is laid out in a way which asks us to consider our relationships with waste, food, water, transportation, energy, and appreciation of nature. Please consider ways you may be able to include this practice during this Holy Season of Lent. (Check out March 19, Blakery Gardens is our own youth minister, Blake Burns.) The calendar is below (hover near the bottom of the page for the arrow to next page) but if the whole thing doesn’t show on your screen, you can click this link to open it in another page.
