Reader's Theater Lent Series

The Man Born to Be King
March 15, 22 & 29, April 5 & 19
A series of radio plays by Dorothy L Sayer

6p Potluck Supper
7 - 7.50p Program


We’ll share a potluck dinner and a brief time of worship before enjoying an edited version of Dorothy Sayers’ BBC radio plays, The Man Born to Be King. The plays will be followed by a “talk-back,” a chance to ask questions of, and to discuss the material.
A noted—and funny—writer of murder mysteries, Sayers firmly believed that the greatest sin was to bore people with “the Greatest Story Ever Told”. This series is her retelling of that Great Story in which doctrine, dogma, and ethics all make an appearance, but at its heart it is a drama in which God in Christ is the central protagonist. God appearing. God seeking. God crucified. God rising. God saving. Bouncing from fun, silliness and lightheartedness, to looming threats, political intrigue, and spiritual twists. Grace, delight, and joy mark Sayers’ scenes, intersecting with sin, despair, and damnation. We hope you will join us! Childcare provided.

Imposition of Ashes Services :: 7a, Noon, & 7p

The towering evangelical Anglican pastor-theologian of the late 20th century, (the Revd Dr) John Stott, began each day with this prayer:

Heavenly Father, I pray that I may live this day in your presence and please you more and more. Lord Jesus, I pray that this day I may take up my cross and follow you. Holy Spirit, I pray that this day you will fill me with yourself and cause your fruit—love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control—to ripen in my life. Holy, blessed and glorious Trinity: three Persons, one God, have mercy upon me, a sinner; in Jesus Christ my Lord. Amen.
