Week 2 – LENT across Swadlincote Minster

We are encouraging everyone to follow the new LICC Lent course called ‘ON PURPOSE’. There are 2 parts to this course – daily readings to follow and weekly material which can be used in small groups and on Sundays.. that is entirely up to you.

This 40-day devotional journey will help Christians discover God-given purpose in everything they do. Because with Jesus, our work, family life, friendships, and interests all serve a higher purpose.

After four days exploring the Scriptural meaning of purpose, for each of the following five weeks you’ll explore a different theme, through a mixture of Bible reflections and true stories. Because Sundays in Lent are traditionally set aside for gathered
church, you won’t get a prompt on Sundays. Finally, in Holy Week you’ll examine how Jesus reveals his true purpose in the days before his crucifixion.

Day 5 (19/02/2024) – 1 Thess. 4:11–12
