In this intensive interactive two day workshop, participants will use the Book of Faith Lenten Journey: Beyond Question, to plan worship, preaching, songs and hymns, and creative ideas and images for a Lenten Sunday or Wednesday worship series.  Led by Beyond Question’s author, the series will focus on Jesus’ use of questions as a methodology for deepening discipleship, and will lead to planning a transformative personal journey through Lent.
Lent comes early in 2013!  Join together with other highly motivated and creative participants.  You will leave this two day seminar with:

  • 60 page notebook with texts, preaching helps and ideas, worship plans, songs and hymns, and your own notes  to augment each week’s theme.
  • A Beyond Question Facebook group made up of people in this seminar to continue networking and sharing ideas through Lent for preaching and worship planning, with active participation by Eric Burtness.
  • A full Lent Sermon Series with texts, preaching targets and sermon titles for your February newsletter!
