Davis Community Church will begin a Lenten devotional season this week with the opportunity to read and discuss a book that includes the historical and political context for the events of the last days of the life of Jesus. “The Last Week,” by Marcus Borg and John Dominic Crossan, chronicles the mounting tensions of that week, tensions that make clear the choice between the path of imperial power and the way of love and equality.
The congregation is forming small-group discussions of the book. Those who are curious about the events of that holy week are invited to read the book, available at The Avid Reader, and to join in discussion groups. Contact Julie Herdt in the church office, firstname.lastname@example.org, for more information.
Lent is a season of renewal for Christians — a time of reflection and commitment. All are welcome at DCC — lifelong Christians, those who are new to Christianity or just curious — to explore Christian spirituality in a progressive, inclusive community.
Lent begins with an Ash Wednesday service, a reminder that life begins anew. The service begins at 7:30 p.m. in the sanctuary at 412 C St.
