Welcome to the 2016 CTBI Lent course
The CTBI Lent Course 2016 represents a departure in style and format from that offered in previous years. Each week, we are invited to gather in groups for reflection and spiritual conversation around a series of themes drawn from the overarching title of ‘Pilgrimage’. The idea is that we embark on a spiritual journey through Lent, both alone and in company, sharing with others our personal reflections, stories and insights.
The notion of ‘Pilgrimage’ is presented in the form of collections of sayings, images, wisdom and prayers from a variety of sources, which are gathered into a pack of seven conversation booklets suitable for personal and group use. Each member of a group will need their own copy of the pack, which will be used as a personal journal.
How can we talk together about things that are important to us, particularly if we don’t agree, or find things difficult to articulate? Through the ‘Shoreline’ approach to conversation, our material, and group process we invite you in to a series of spiritual conversations during Lent 2016 where we hope you will strengthen and deepen your faith both alone and in the company of others in your Christian community.
Each week explores a different aspect of Christian pilgrimage, and these headings will be the subject of weekly programmes on BBC Radio 4’s Sunday Worship and Local Radio. Radio 4’s Daily Service will also cover aspects of Pilgrimage.
