Turning up the Heat: Studies on the Passion of Jesus
Turning up the Heat: Studies on the Passion of Jesus (from 2/26 through 4/1 in the Library)
Come check out the new Sunday School class this Lent! Lead by Jolinda Reddy.
Passion – a loaded word that we associate with intense love, a compelling emotion, or a single-minded commitment. Its roots, however, mean “submission to suffering.” Nowhere do all those meanings converge as powerfully as they do in the final hours of Jesus’ life. Over six weeks, participants will discover how the story of Jesus’ journey to the cross reveals not only God’s passionate love for humanity, but also Jesus’ invitation to a life of servanthood and nonviolence.
