Let Us Attend
William C MillsISBN: 9781933275260;
Let Us Attend is a collection of short reflections on the Scripture readings from the Gospel of Mark that are read in the Orthodox Church during Great Lent. Lent is a more intense time of year as we return “back to the basics” expressed in the Scriptures, namely, almsgiving, fasting, and prayer which are most clearly expressed and incarnated through loving and serving our neighbor: husbands, wives, children, neighbors, and co-workers. Too often Lent can easily slip into a self-centered time if we focus too much on ourselves. However, if we pay close attention to the Lenten prayers, hymns, and Scripture readings, we begin to realize that we are called to lay down our life for our neighbor, especially those who are on the margins of society, the poor, orphan, widow, abused, and homeless. By loving and serving our neighbor, we begin to love and serve God. Let Us Attend is a valuable resource for personal and group Bible study, adult education classes, and sermon preparation.
