Lent at Midway

Lent at Midway United Methodist Church

Lent is a time of reflection and preparation for Easter. During these 40 days, “Witness at the Cross: A Beginners Guide to Holy Friday” by Amy-Jill Levine, will be our guide. In our church-wide study we will experience the crucifixion through the other witnesses at the cross.

From the publisher: "In Witness at the Cross, Amy-Jill Levine shows how the people at the cross each have distinct roles to play. Each Evangelist presents a distinct picture of the death of Jesus. Each portrays different individuals and groups of people at the cross, each offers different images and dialogues, and so from each, we learn how those meanings and messages cross the centuries to any who would come to the cross today.

Each Gospel has its own story to tell, all the witnesses have their own memories, and every reader comes away with a new insight. The witnesses at the Crucifixion watch Jesus die, and we watch with them, and we watch them. And we come away transformed.

Additional components are available for a six-week study include a DVD featuring Dr. Levine and a comprehensive Leader Guide."
