On Wednesdays during Lent, we will be looking and discussing the essence of Death that leads to Resurrection. What is death ? Why is it that we fear the word and concept?

For most of us the word is terrifying that we don't even want to say the word or think about it. The word and concept is so morbid and stressful to the level that we substitute others ways of dealing with the word, so instead of saying someone has died, we say, the person has passed away.

Yet, as Christians, who are disciples of Our Lord Jesus Christ hope and believe we will experience same Resurrection as He did after His crucifixion and death. So as Christians if we are to be honest with ourselves, we will accept and know that without death there will be no resurrection.

We will also look at other significant kinds of death and how they prevent us from experiencing true resurrection with Christ.  So for the five weeks in Lent, we will be talking about issue of death, how do we prepare for it, how do we handle it when it happens , how do we cope with the aftermath in healthy and healing ways, etc.

We will then end with what does it mean to be resurrected with Christ in Easter.

Please come and join us every Wednesday in Nickleson Hall.
