Short, daily devotional podcasts are available each day of Lent to help you “See with Fresh Eyes.” At the end of each podcast, you’ll be invited to journal your thoughts. Complimentary Asbury journals are available at each Welcome Center.
Robyn White, Director of Adult Ministry has also written “Seeing with Fresh Eyes: Lenten Meditations through the lens of the Gospel of Mark” to help guide you through the prayer practice of meditation and journaling into your Lenten spiritual journey. This can be used as a companion to the Podcast or as a standalone resource.
Copies of “Seeing with Fresh Eyes” are available at each Welcome Center upon request or you may download the guide below.
Rev. Michael Bowman will help us understand how prayer, silence, and meditation can make us think and be more like Jesus in “Apprenticeship,” a new in-person or online Lenten Study Wednesdays at 6:15 p.m. in Room 144.
Wish you could take Apprenticeship when it’s convenient for you? You can! The video-based study is available in a new virtual platform, Ministry Grid. Watch the videos and check out resources at your own pace – no need to “attend” class on Wednesdays or any time. Anyone from Asbury – or your network of friends community – can be an apprentice.
Access Ministry Grid and create a user name and password. The class is separated into four sections: Apprenticeship Intro, Apprentice, Silence & Solitude, and Prayer. There are a series of videos within each section.
Click on the “Intro” video to begin and follow the “next” buttons to go through the course. Pastor Michael made notes in the “Discussion” and “Overview” tabs. And you’ll see optional, “Dive Deeper” resources at the end of each section.
Holy Week begins. We celebrate Jesus’ ride into Jerusalem on the back of a simple donkey but prepare for the suffering that is to come. There is no triumph without suffering, no crown without a cross.
On your own, retrace the footsteps of Jesus carrying his cross to Calvary via the 14 Stations of the Cross, depicted through art. Your journey ends with communion and the option to walk a prayer labyrinth. Come any time between 4:00 and 8:00 p.m.
Pause to consider the suffering, death, and burial of our Lord before we celebrate his triumphant resurrection.
Christ is Risen. Hallelujah! Celebrate with us on this festival day!
