During Lent, which begins on Ash Wednesday (14 February this year) we are encouraging you to read through the Gospel accounts, from the time of Jesus’ entry into Jerusalem through to the end of the Gospels.

One chapter a day (not including weekends) will get you through all the texts before Easter.

You can pick up the reading schedule

at the welcome desk at OCC in person

Here is a summary of pastor Mike’s twitter posts on these texts during lent

  • We are reading the #gospel accounts from Jesus’ entry into Jerusalem. Authority and a new way of doing things #MT21 #lent
  • kingdom issues: excuses we make; paying taxes; “you do not know the Scriptures or the power of God”; “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. Love your neighbor as yourself” #gospel #MT 22 #lent
