TED Talks: Wednesdays in Lent

Event details

  • Wednesday | February 25, 2015 to Wednesday | March 25, 2015
  • 6:00 pm
  • St. Paul's Brooks Room

This Lent – instead of, or along with – “giving up something,” you are invited to think about how you are called to live out your faith. Each Wednesday in Lent, Associate Rector Richard Israel will facilitate a unique Lenten program that combines short TED talks (Technology, Entertainment, Design) with Scripture texts to set the stage for meaningful conversation about life and faith. This study is a reprise of last year’s Sunday morning Lenten program.

You are invited to come for the Eucharist at 6 p.m. in the Chapel of the Cross, followed by a light supper, and then the program at 7 p.m. in the Brooks Room. All are welcome to attend one or more Wednesday, since each presentation will stand on its own.

Week 1 – February 25
God Calls All of Us into Leadership: We will discuss how leadership relates to loving God and our neighbor.

Week 2 – March 4
The Doubt Essential to Faith: Our call to love God is not blind, but a relationship into which we are invited to delve deeply as our questions and quest for understanding strengthen our faith in God.

Week 3 – March 11
Loving Our Neighbors and Our Enemies: We will discuss whom God calls us to love when we are told to love our neighbor and even our enemies.

Week 4 – March 18
How Do You Define Yourself? When we are called to share the Good News with the world, it is important that we have to spiritual foundation to know that we are God’s beloved children or else we will burn out.

Week 5 – March 25
Never, Ever Give Up: Living as Christ’s disciples in the world is not easy, but that is why we are not sent alone, but given the gift of community.
