40 DAYS OF RENEWAL
During the Lent season beginning mid- February, the Lantern will be studying Richard Foster’s The Celebration of Discipline. It’’s book generally considered to be a modern classic on the topic of Christian guiding principles for growth and maturity. During the months of February and March, Lanternites will cover, re-cover, dis-cover again the areas of prayer, study, simplicity, service and celebration, both in several small group settings and throughout the Lent season on Sunday morning. Other books we’ll incorporate in our two-month exploration are The Spirit of the Disciplines by Dallas Willard, Life Together by Dietrich Bonhoeffer and Awake My Soul by Timothy Jones. The one book always at table will be the Bible.
