Four Scriptures - Four Pictures. Lent Course (in English)
Ivan Kramskoy, Christ in the Wilderness, 1872
Faith and fear. These two attitudes dominate our lives more profoundly than we can sometimes admit. But what does it mean to stay in faith? And is it possible to overcome fear?
Mary was greatly troubled at the words of the angel. Martha was distracted by all the domestic things she felt she was left with. And John the Baptist would rather pass his honourable task over to Jesus… When it comes to God's calling on our lives, our very first reaction is often "Why me, Lord?". God's answer to this – "Do not be afraid, have no fear!"
In this Lent Course we will ponder the theme of Trust in the Bible and in our lives. Four great artists of the past will take us on the journey of looking for our own answers in the light of four familiar Bible passages.
You are warmly invited to share with us this time of reflection and fellowship on Tuesdays 17.3; 24.3; 31.3 and 7.4 from 2 to 3.30 p.m. at Haus Bleiche, Bleichestrasse 9 (Kurzrickenbach), Kreuzlingen.
