Lent: the season of reflection, review, preparation. And an opportunity for us to dig deeper into the Old Testament to discover Easter Roots. As we do, we discover we are people of God's promise.
We began with Genesis; now we're following through Isaiah. From chapter 40-66, the Lord reveals his character. His promise is to rescue people and build a new community to impact and transform the whole world. As he shares his heart and priorities with us, we realise he is not only the giver of the promise; he is also the guard and guarantor of it.
This week we discover how different is his perspective from ours. Isaiah 55: Listen, to Live.
Join us on Friday at 10am and Sunday at 10.30am.
The builders are in to refurbish the Cathedral, so we're meeting in the Diocesan Hall instead of the Cathedral itself. Turn right as you come into the compound.
The renewal project is part of our anniversary celebrations - 25 years as All Saints' Cathedral in Zamalek, 75 as All Saints' Cathedral in Cairo, and 135 years as All Saints' church in the city. That's a lot of life and witness to give thanks for, a lot of faithful people from Egypt and many other nations who have served and worked here. And it makes us "work in progress" - a pretty good business image for followers of Jesus, who are always learning about their Lord and growing in their faith.
