Give Up Something Bad for Lent by James Moore
9:30-11:00 a.m. Begins March 1
Led by Debbi Marshall and Patricia Hocker
South Adult Education Rooms 1 and 2
During Lent each year, Christians give up something as an act of sacrifice and spiritual discipline. Often it is something like chocolate, knowing that after Easter Sunday they can once again enjoy what they have given up. James Moore challenges readers to take it further―to give up something spiritually that they would be better off not doing. He invites all to seek God’s help to focus on eliminating one habit or attitude that is destructive. Imagine giving up envy, jealousy, self-pity, apathy, procrastination, gossip, resentment, or negative thinking, how much better life would be. Join us for this Lenten study. The book is available at Amazon or Cokesbury.

In this study, you’ll be invited to consider the landscape of your own life, and what it might look like to begin the life-changing practice of simply being present, in the middle of the mess and the ordinariness of life. A wonderful opportunity at the end of the week for moms to come together for support and study. Childcare is provided.
