The Mystery of God.
In 2019, our Lent course delves more deeply into the mystery of God, seeking to rediscover what it is that draws us so deeply in our search for God. We will follow Jesus through the Lenten readings, allowing him to draw us, in love and wonder, into the mystery of God’s plan of salvation.

How to use the resources
In each week of the resources there are different sections, colour coded so that you can choose which parts of the resource to use, depending on what you and/or your group like to do:
- Yellow sections are conversation starters and things to think about
- Blue sections involve prayer and engagement with Scripture
- Green sections offer something to do – like watch a piece of video and talk about it
- Pink sections involve theological reflection and an invitation to deepen and develop your devotional practice
Background to the theme
In 2017, the Mission Theology Advisory Group (MTAG) ran a mission project for the 500th anniversary of the Reformation. It was called ‘the 95 missional theses project’ and every day for 95 days before the anniversary on 31st October 2017, the group issued a statement, based on the five marks of mission, about the sort of Church we might believe in. You can read the 95 Missional Theses (PDF).
The statement which, overwhelmingly, got the most attention, was:
We believe in a Church that is more concerned with the mystery that is God
than with its own success
