Saying Yes To Life (The Archbishop of Canterbury's Lent Book 2020)

9780281083770 - Ruth Valerio - SPCK - £9.99

Saying Yes to Life lifts our focus from natural, everyday concerns to issues that are having an impact on millions of lives around the world. As people made in the image of God, we are entrusted to look after what he has created: to share in God’s joy and ingenuity in making a difference for good. Ruth Valerio imaginatively draws on the Days of Creation (Genesis 1) as she relates themes of light, water, land, the seasons, other creatures, humankind, Sabbath rest and resurrection hope to matters of environmental, ethical and social concern.

This Lent, Michael Baughen reminds us that ‘we share abundantly in the sufferings of Christ’ (2 Cor. 1:5). Can we really identify with His sufferings? Most of us live lives of plenty, comfort and choice, so what does this really mean? Over six studies, we will consider how, as followers of Christ, we can: • share in the sufferings of Christ • be a Church marked by love and holiness • share the hope of the gospel • shine the light of Christ’s glory • use suffering as a personal testimony • give our lives as a living sacrifice to Christ
