First Presbyterian is pleased to provide a series of resources and worship opportunities to coordinate with our “Journey to the Cross” sermon series leading up to Easter. We will be using Michael Card’s book, A Sacred Sorrow, as the primary resource both for common curriculum in adult Sunday School classes and as a devotional to begin March 1.
Beginning March 15, our Sunday School communities will be teaching a four-week common curriculum, using A Sacred Sorrow .
In addition, we are encouraging the First Pres family to participate in a weekly devotional by reading portions of the book beginning the week of March 1 and carrying us through to Easter Sunday. The reading schedule for A Sacred Sorrow for the devotional are as follows:
|March 1-7||Part One: An Ancient Lament||pp. 15-33|
|March 8-14||Part Two: Job||pp. 37-60|
|March 15-21||Part Three: David||pp. 63-92|
|March 22-28||Part Five: Jesus||pp. 117-133|
|March 29-April 4||Part Six: Conclusion||pp. 137-143|
