LIVING AN AUTHENTIC LIFE: A FIVE-SESSION LENT STUDY COURSE EXPLORING DISCIPLESHIP WITH THE WORLD CHURCH.
The USPG Lent study course for 2017 explores what it means to be a disciple of Christ by looking at the Bible and reading about the experiences of Christians around the world. You are encouraged to investigate what discipleship means to you personally and collectively. Hopefully, the result will be that we feel more able to live an authentic life, being true to ourselves, true to those we meet, and true to God. A space is allocated as part of each study for you to note down something you have learned that you could incorporate into your practice of discipleship.
STUDY 1: INTRODUCING DISCIPLESHIP
STUDY 2: HOW SHALL WE LIVE?
STUDY 3: LIVING WITH DIFFERENCE
STUDY 4: A WORLD OF INJUSTICE
STUDY 5: COUNTING THE COST
In pursuing the course allow for differences of opinion. One of the important qualities of the Anglican Communion is that it seeks to hold unity in diversity: we can disagree, or hold different perspectives, but still be one in Christ. Be willing to think differently. Rather than trying to find the ‘right’ answer to a question, instead be curious and interested in the many different perspectives and points of view that people have to offer.
