Lenten Book Study
by Amanda Perkins McGriff
When we are initiated into the church with the water of baptism, we (or our sponsors) answer a series of questions called the Baptismal Covenant. The first three questions echo the words of our creeds, our beliefs about God and the church. The last five questions focus on action. They each begin with the words: “Will You?”
These “Will You” questions articulate how we are to animate our baptism, to follow Christ’s example in our relationships with others, our communities, and the world. These questions move from a “gathering in” to a “sending out”–they are a call to embrace and practice evangelism by proclaiming the Good News of Christ in all we do and say.
Amanda Perkins McGriff’s book is a 5-week study for small groups that takes us through our Baptismal vows. The Community will meet on Sunday evenings at 5PM Central to discuss. Volunteers are needed to lead a session or two during Lent.
