March 13, 2020: In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, it is our hope that POP’s Soup & Scripture Lenten Series (minus the soup!) will continue in an online format via Zoom. Zoom is a meeting platform that is easy to access by clicking on a link in an email or by calling a phone number. So, if you have a computer or a phone, you can participate without having to be a tech wizard. Watch a helpful video here. Contact the church office at firstname.lastname@example.org for instructions.
Come to POP’s Fellowship Hall every Wednesday night, March 4th through April 1st, for a sampling of soups and breads and then feast on the Word of the Lord! This year’s Soup & Scripture is titled The Holy in the Ordinary. They are objects that are so ordinary that we can easily overlook them when we’re reading the Bible: figs, oil, coats, sandals, thorns… But even they can make the Gospel come alive. This Lent, you are invited to join Rev. Elizabeth D. McLean to delve into the Bible to learn the stories these objects tell. Each week we will consider the symbolism of one or two new objects. Then, in the last class, we will revisit all the objects again in the context of the Bible stories about the last week of Jesus’ earthly life. Come find the holy in the ordinary, and in so doing, acquire a fuller understanding of the Gospel, and a way to see it and feel it, even in the real world. Come for a delicious meal of soup and bread at 6:00 p.m., and then join in the study and discussion from 6:30–7:30 p.m.!
*Childcare is available upon advanced request, and if you wish to be a soup donor, please contact the church office at 410-721-2313.
