A Lenten study based on the book A World Worth Saving: Lenten Spiritual Practices for Action by George Hovaness Donigian will be led by Rev. Eleanor Colvin at St. Paul’s United Methodist Church. The study begins Tuesday, February 24, at 7 p.m.

Colvin is St. Paul’s associate minister for Community and Global Missions.

The text will be available for purchase at the first session for $10, or participants may bring their own.

As described by the publisher, this study is “for anyone who dismisses Lent as a seemingly endless time of self-sacrifice and introspection, this six-week study for Lent offers a breath of fresh air. It connects prayer and other inner spiritual practices with outward actions of mercy and compassion. God thinks the world is worth saving. When we are close to God, we too will want to save the world.

Author “George Donigian guides you to grow in your prayer life by praying about daily news reports, discovering the needs around you, and responding with love and compassion. You will discover ways to serve others, feed the hungry, seek justice and fight injustice, offer healing, and extend friendship.”
