The Presbyterians Read

The Presbyterians Read selection this Lent invites the church to reflect on the work of the 14th Century Christian mystic, Julian of Norwich. Using Lisa E. Dunhill’s 40-Day Journey with Julian of Norwich, readers will be guided through different sections such as 'Biblical Wisdom', 'Questions to Ponder', 'Psalm Fragments', 'Journal Reflections' exercises and prayers to encounter Jesus.

The Rev. Dr. Emily Bisset, who holds a ThD in homiletics (preaching), specializing in helping people of faith see their lives and the world through the lens of theological reflection, will facilitate sharing online. At least weekly, during Lent and a few times in advance of Ash Wednesday, Emily will post on Facebook some thoughts, suggestions for further reading and devotion, encouragement and additional questions to consider. These posts may be the catalyst for participants to share ideas and questions and to enter into discussion with people beyond their reading group and across the church. Join the Presbyterians Read Facebook.

40-Day Journey with Julian of Norwich is available from major booksellers in print or digital format.

As part of the Presbyterians Read series, the PCC offers an accompanying journal you can order (free) or download and print for your reflections.
