'The Lamb Wins'
(Benefice and LEP Lent Course 2015)
For our Lent Course this year we will be tackling the Book of Revelation. We will base our learning on a book by Revd Richard Bewes, one time Rector of All Souls Langham Place, entitled 'The Lamb Wins'.
The victory of Christ the Lamb is what Richard Bewes sees as the central theme of Revelation as, using images from the Old Testament, it expresses the implications of that reality in the broad sweep of future human history.
We hope that through dwelling on this portion of scripture together God will work in us so that we will:
- Sharpen our identity as followers of Christ
- Reflect on the importance of a distinctive Christian life style
- See events in the world in the light of God's bigger plan
If we allow the study to impact us in these ways, then we will be further invigorated for Mission.
Each session will have the familiar mix of teaching, discussion, worship and prayer led by members of the Ministry Team.
