Opening the Scriptures: setting our hearts on fire

CTBI Lent 2020What biblical texts set your heart on fire? This question is central to “Opening the Scriptures“, the Lent study course for 2020 from Churches Together in Britain and Ireland.
The phrase is drawn from the New Testament account of a mysterious stranger who meets two people journeying on the road to Emmaus, whose identity is eventually revealed as the three of them break bread together (Luke 24: 13-38). After the realisation dawns that their fellow traveller was none other than Jesus himself, the two disciples say to each other: ‘Did not our hearts burn within us…’ Taking this biblical story as its starting point, the course invites us to ‘open the scriptures’ and read them with with both our hearts and our heads.
In the Year of the Word, this course  will be an ideal resource for Lent 2020.
