Our pastor Ewan King will be hosting a Lenten Zoom across the forty days of Lent (Wednesday 14 February to Saturday 30 March 2024, excluding Sundays), reading Mark’s gospel from the very first verse up to Jesus’ burial at the end of chapter fifteen. All are welcome to join, and everyone is warmly invited to participate. We’ll meet on Zoom each morning and evening (apart from Sundays) at 8am and 8pm, say the Lord’s Prayer, read the appointed text, and say the Grace. Ewan writes:
"Mark’s gospel is not long, and, chopped into eighty, won’t take a significant chunk out of one’s morning or evening! I anticipate the sessions taking only two or three minutes, on average. Nevertheless, having tried twice-a-day Zoom devotions through Lent last year, I can confirm that something like this can be a really helpful rhythm: a good way to start the day and something to look forward to as night draws in. Equally, it’s something you can 'drop in' on, even if you only tune in for one of the eighty readings!"
The text is arranged for this purpose in the attached PDF. There are also beautiful physical copies available in the church, or if you would like one to be sent or delivered to you contact Wilf Merttens at firstname.lastname@example.org.
