LENT 2021 ADULT STUDY at St. Andrew’s:
Classes are full and registration is now closed. Thank you to all who are participating this year.
1) Exploring Exile
Is the Bible a book about a people trying to make sense of their exile?
What is exile, and how might it affect one’s relationship with God?
Is it merely about enduring separation from one’s physical homeland, or is exile spiritual as well?
During Lent we reflect upon our relationship with Christ as we prepare for Easter: Christ’s own coming home.
2) The Cutting Edge of Mission
What does it mean to be engaged in mission in the 21st century world?
What does it mean to be part of a global church that lives and witnesses in vastly different contexts?
Where is God calling us in mission?
These are some of the questions we will explore in this study. Some reading will be required including readings from a compendium of speeches given by recipients of the E. H. Johnson Award for those “on the cutting edge of mission”. After an introduction in the first week, we will focus on different areas of the world and the insights that come from experiences in those regions.
And what does that say to us at King and Simcoe Streets in Toronto?
