Changing Our Perspective: Reading the Sunday of Lent from the Viewpoints of Minor Characters


Out of stock



Wednesday evenings, March 2, 9, 16, 23, 30, April 6 at 7:00 pm. Via Zoom.
Facilitator: Sr. Sarah Kohles, OSF.

Sometimes unnamed, seemingly insignificant characters are the key to understanding Scripture. What new insights from the Sunday Gospels surface this Lent when we read them through the perspectives of minor characters? What does the widow who gave her last coins teach us about the temptation of Jesus? Just how many points of view are there in the story of the prodigal son? What might the countless unnamed witnesses to the way of the cross and the death of Jesus show us?
