Lent Course 2022: Surprised by Generosity

Surprised by Generosity is a new seven week Lent course looking at God’s generosity to us and our call to live generously in return.

It has been devised by the Diocese of Exeter Mission Resources Advisor Brigit Kiyaga and written by contributors from across the diocese, including author and speaker Dave Hopwood.

It is based on the Gospel of Luke and features video reflections, interviews, a small group study guide and suggested church service talks.

The Right Reverend Nick McKinnel, Bishop of Plymouth, said:

“Thanks be to God for his inexpressible gift!” exclaims the apostle Paul as he overflows with gratitude for the generosity of God he has discovered in Jesus Christ.  Praise and thanksgiving lie at the heart of our faith, the inevitable response to discovering the grace, mercy and truth of God.  ‘Surprised by Generosity’, our 2022 Lent course, opens our eyes afresh both to all that God generously gives us in Jesus and to how we might live generously in return.  Practical, Biblical, challenging and professionally produced, it makes a great resource for churches, study groups and individuals who want to rediscover the God of surprises.”
