Lent offers a perfect time to reflect on many things. You are invited to reflect on the mysteries of the Easter story by joining together in a Lenten Bible study. On Saturday mornings March 30, April 6 and 13 from 9:00 to 11:00 a.m. at Faith Lutheran Church in Ottawa’s West end, on 43 Meadowlands Dr. W., contemplate the Lenten journey, and enjoy a hot brown beverage if you so choose.
This Lenten reflection series called ‘Finding meaning from Lent to Easter’ will be facilitated by Pastor JoAnne Lam based on resources from the Journey to Baptismal Living Workshop.
On this study journey you may encounter the Word of God in a personal way, experiencing God in the midst of your life. You may come to any or all of the studies, come alone or bring a friend, plan to listen, or share in the discussion.
It would be wonderful to experience this journey with you. This series will culminate in an Easter Vigil taking place the evening of Holy Saturday, April 20, from 6:00-9:30 pm at Martin Luther Church, 933 Smyth Road, with soup provided.
For more information you may contact Marianne Thornton: email@example.com 613-526-5414.
“As we were dreaming” is a German film directed by Andreas Dresen, based on the novel of the same name by author Clemens Meyer about a group of East German friends in Leipzig at the time of the German reunification.
Andreas Dresen conveys in this specifically German coming-of-age story before and after the fall of the wall with a lot of humour and rousing drive, the very special way of life of his youthful protagonists. Dani, Mark, Rico, Pitbull and Paul live in the intoxicating raptures of a special time. Years in which societies and systems collide and everything, really everything seems possible. The boys are thirteen when the story begins in the GDR, seventeen, when it ends in the new Germany.
Director: Andreas Dresen
109 minutes; German with English Subtitles
