ARISE Season 4: New Heart, New Spirit Faith-Sharing Book

This resource for Season Four, which takes place during Lent, provides six faith-sharing sessions on the theme "New Heart, New Spirit."

Session One: Life Choices
Session Two: The Transforming Power of Forgiveness
Session Three: Building Anew
Session Four: Children of Light
Session Five: Unbinding and Being Unbound
Session Six: Called to New Creation

The first session reflects on Jesus’ desert experience as a model for shaping our life choices, and measuring them against the values of the Gospel. The second session explores the transforming power of forgiveness. Session three faces up to the challenge of ever raising up, always building anew, and in particular how we are called to do this both as individuals, and as Church. The Lenten theme of light is central to session four, with the invitation to shine the light of Christ onto, into, and through our lives. Our reflection in session five is on the great sign of Lazarus being called back into life. The final session invites us to reflect on the great gift of new and renewed life that God offers us in Christ: we are a new creation. The Scripture from this final session gives the title to the whole season, affirming our belief that God’s promise, through the prophet Ezekiel, to give his people New Heart, New Spirit is made real in our lives through Christ and the great Easter mystery.
