Lentwise is a five-session course which helps us to deal with the rigors of real life. Using fresh insights from John's gospel, it explores:
Each session contains enough material for 90 minutes and includes: guidelines and full background notes for leaders, a passage from John's gospel freshly translated by the author, prompts to aid both discussion and understanding, inspiring quotations and personal stories, prayer exercises, ideas for using multimedia in the group, and resources to support worship together. Each group member will need a copy of the book.
