"The Claim Upon Us": an opportunity for Lent

An invitation to our Wednesday evening Lenten series


bonhoeffer-standinghe Claim Upon Us: Learning Lent with Dietrich Bonhoeffer – Five Wednesdays in Lent:  February 24 and March 3, 10, 17 and 24, presented by saint benedict’s table in cooperation with the congregation of All Saints’ Church.

Each of the gatherings will be built around a simple service of Compline, into which will be set a reflection by Dr Christopher Holmes about what we might learn from the thought, faith, and witness of the great German theologian Dietrich Bonhoeffer. With so much of his life and work carried out under the shadow of the Third Reich, Bonhoeffer essentially embodies a Lenten and wilderness Christianity.

We will meet at All Saints Church, located at the corner of Broadway and Osborne, with each session beginning at 7:00pm.

You are also welcome to join us for our Ash Wednesday Liturgy on February 17 at 7:00pm.

holmes_sbtDr Christopher Holmes is associate professor of Theology and Ethics at Providence Seminary, and is currently serving as a transitional deacon at saint benedict’s table. In the spring of 2010 Chris will assume the position of senior lecturer in Theology at the University of Otago in Dunedin, New Zealand.
