Lenten Book Study

Lent is underway and so is our Diocesan Book Study: Beginning to Pray by Anthony Bloom. Each Monday we will provide a link to the podcast covering the previous week's suggested reading. The link will be included in the weekly Bishop's Blast and Clergy News.

This week's podcast covers the "Introduction" of Bloom's book, pg. 1-22. Next Monday we will cover the chapter "The Absence of God." We're so glad you have joined us this Lent!

Beginning to Pray: Diocesan Lenten Book Study

Parishes and parishioners are invited to join the diocese in reading "Beginning to Pray" by Anthony Bloom ($9.95 on Amazon here) as the Lenten Book Study this season!

Here's the plan: If you would like to study this book with us, follow the link above and purchase it for yourself and/or several for your congregation. The suggested reading plan is below, and each week we will post a link to a 20-minute audio discussion (podcast) to review and supplement the previous week's reading. Accessing the podcast will be as easy as clicking on the link in each week's Blast or Clergy News.
