Lent Focus in Yate Parish

Drops Like Stars By Rob Bell

This year we will be using Rob Bell’s book ‘Drops Like Stars’ for our Lent focus. The book centres on how, when we encounter pain and suffering, our lives are disrupted and we are forced to take a new path, to create new expectations and to evaluate our relationship with God. The course will take place over six weeks:

Week 1: The art of disruption

Week 2 The art of honesty

Week 3: The art of the ache

Week 4: The art of solidarity

Week 5: The art of elimination

Week 6: The art of failure

As well as organising lent study groups, we will be producing a sermon series based on the themes of the book and a series of podcasts which will be available on our website for you to engage with. More information will be on our website as we approach Ash Wednesday.

I have found this book really useful in thinking through the experience of the past year and if you would like to obtain a copy for yourself it is available to order online either in hard copy or as an e-book.
