Shapes for Living

Shapes for Living Lent CourseJesus says, ‘I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full’ (John 10:10).

As faithful disciples of Jesus Christ, we are called ‘to work for the flourishing of all people and the flourishing of the whole of creation’. ‘Life in all its fullness’ is the gift God wants for all of us. But if we are to live that calling well we will need to find a sustainable, nurturing shape for our own lives, so easily over-busy with the stressful and overwhelming demands of modern living.

This course:

  • offers a fresh way of exploring what is traditionally called a Rule of Life
  • is about the whole business of being alive – with ourselves, each other and God
  • is a way of growth, transformation and flourishing
  • helps to hold us true to our beliefs, values and priorities.
