We are looking forward to our next adult faith formation opportunity, a 6-session series entitled "Lesser Evils." Gathering each Wednesday evening during the season of Lent, the series will invite participants to together explore everyday dilemmas of seeking the good while having to choose from among so-called "lesser evils," all from a Christian perspective. After all, regardless of how righteous we might feel about our decisions, each day we end up choosing the "lesser of two evils" in every realm of our life, from plastic to politics. This constant struggle can wear on our spirit, stretch our patience, and increase our fault-finding with others. In the midst of these live realities, how can we attempt to seek wisdom and do good as followers of Jesus?
For this series, participants will be invited to partake, together with others from around the whole of The United Church of Canada, of the daily reflection material offered in Lesser Evils: Daily Reflections on Seeking Wisdom. This brand new release from The United Church Publishing House, edited by Alydia Smith, challenges all followers of Jesus to faithfully attempt to do and seek good in our actions and choices.
Our formation series group here at Cloverdale United Church will meet each Wednesday evening through Lent to share in prayer and conversation together around the themes explored in the daily reflections in the Lesser Evils book.
We have already obtained a number of print copies of the Lesser Evils book; please contact Rev. Matt if you would like a copy; a contribution of $20 per copy is invited.
