For five weeks in Lent, starting Thursday February 25th, we pair popular Ted Talks with passages of scripture to inspire us in fresh new ways to hear and consider what God wants from us.
Each evening, we’ll watch a 10-15 minute Ted Talk together on such topics as leadership, love, and perseverance. Then, we’ll turn to Scriptures to see how the words of the video presenter speaks into the lessons we learn from the words of Jesus. Come prepared to join a conversation about how it is that we are inspired to grow in our own self-understanding and in our relationship with God.
The talks are not necessarily progressive, so you can come to one, some or all.
