Lenten Discussion

Join us in person at HUMC or via Zoom for a Lenten Small Group Study led by Pastor Char. This study is called “Faithful Lent – Connecting the Practices of Lent and Anti-Racism” and was produced by the General Commission on Religion and Race of the United Methodist Church. We will meet March 15, March 22, March 29, and April 5 at 9:30 a.m. Join us in person, or email churchoffice@hebronmethodist.org for a link to join via zoom.

The purpose of this small group study is to make explicit connections between the traditions of Lent and the work of anti-racism without forcing either one to be what they are not. This study has been created with the faith-filled assumption that when we take seriously our Lenten traditions and what is necessary for the work of anti-racism, we find the two complement each other, not compete. Thus, what results is anti-racism work which emerges faithfully from engaging in authentic and tradition-based Lenten practices. Much of this study is organized along worship-based categories such as scripture reading, scripture reflection, and prayer.
