Lee on the Lectionary: 2nd Sunday before Lent (Year C)
Posted by Lee Gatiss, 20 Feb 2019
This week's readings teach us that the one whose word made and sustains the orderly creation for our benefit is worthy of all our praise.
The readings for the 2nd Sunday before Lent (Year C) are Genesis 2:4b-9 and 15-25, Revelation 4, and Luke 8:22-25.
You can follow along with these video expositions on the Lee on the Lectionary Facebook page. We also tweet the video link every Sunday morning at 6am for those who like a morning exposition of the word to begin the week. Follow us @churchsociety.
Gospel Flourishing in a Time of Confusion
Posted by Lee Gatiss , 19 Feb 2019
Lee Gatiss announces the latest Church Society publication, which contains much needed wisdom from the Bible and church history for Anglican Evangelicals.
Our newest book is a fruit of the recent merger between Church Society and the Fellowship of Word & Spirit and Reform. It originates in papers given at an FWS Study Day and at the CS Conference last year, and contains chapters by Bishops Rod Thomas (a former Chairman of Reform) and Wallace Benn (a former President of Church Society and FWS), Rob Munro and James Hughes (members of FWS who are now on Church Society Council), and myself as Director of Church Society.
Copies can be purchased here, and there are discounts for 5+ copies.
Gospel Flourishing in a Time of Confusion addresses key questions facing Anglican Evangelicals at this moment of disorder and uncertainty. Should we stay in the Church of England, and make use of the many gospel opportunities it affords? Or should we leave for pastures new, since things within the established church have become so difficult? What does it mean to be a“righteous remnant”in an apostate church, when everyone seems to be doing “what is right in their own eyes”? And are there lessons we can learn from how our ancestors handled these sorts of questions, not just in recent times but in the very earliest days of the church?
