Ideal for Lent, yet not Lent-specific.
Prof Keith Ward,
Bishop David Wilbourne
and Cathy Galvin
Mark's Gospel begins with Jesus 'proclaiming the Good news of God'. But, what is this 'good news', and who is it for? Taking Mark 1.14-15 as a starting point, this course raises important questions about change, repentance, and how we can become in ourselves living evidence of the good news. Examples are taken from the rest of Mark's Gospel as well as contemporary and historic Christians.
1. The Good News of God
2. The time is now
3. God is present
4. Change your mind
5. Live it!
The course booklet includes a good selection of questions at the end of each of the five sessions, designed to stimulate wide-ranging discussion. Each group needs a copy of the course audio, and group members will benefit from having their own personal copy of the course booklet. In addition many groups find the transcript, which sets out the words as spoken on the audio material, invaluable.
