Lenten Study: Death of Jesus for Progressive Christians

March 21 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Lenten Study: Death of Jesus for Progressive Christians

The Manitou Intentional Learning Community invites you to participate in a three-week Lenten study, The Death of Jesus for Progressive Christians published in 2019. Donald Schmidt’s study guides participants through the Biblical stories about the death of Jesus “invit[ing] us to ask the larger question hanging in the background. Why did Jesus die?” Schmidt suggests that “Jesus’ theme of God’s involvement in the world on behalf of the marginalized . . . was a major challenge to the religious order of the day. It had to be stopped.” The ideas explored in this text resonate with people of faith in the modern world. In the introduction, Schmidt writes: “The point of this study is to help you . . . analyze, celebrate, incarnate, and try to live out the powerful story of the events leading up to Jesus’ death and burial.”
Leadership will be provided by Rev. Dave LeGrand, Rev. Erin Todd, and Rev. Dawn Vaneyk. Sessions will take place via Zoom on Monday, March 21, March 28 and April 4 from 7:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.
