Bible Studies During Lent: Cowley Video Series and Workbook

For our weekly Bible Studies group during the period of Lent St. Philip's Church will be using the Cowley Video Series and Workbook.

It’s time to...Stop, Pray, Work, Play, Love

Produced by the monks of the Society of St. John the Evangelist, it consists of a short daily video meditation and a question for reflection. 

We will gather on Tuesdays at 8:00 pm (following the Eucharist at 7:30) to watch and share our reflections.

It is also possible to watch the videos on your own or to participate in an online discussion through social media.

Lent 2015 – Videos and Workbook

It’s time to… Stop, Pray, Work, Play & Love

So much of our stress and anxiety derives from our pollution of Time. God has given us the gift of time, and called it holy, yet we often experience time as a curse. In a series of short, daily videos over five weeks, the Brothers of SSJE invite us to recapture time as a gift. Join the Brothers as they wrestle with questions of time and discover how to experience the joy of the present moment.

Note: Videos will go live on date indicated in brackets

Introduction: Time












This series starts on 5am local time Ash Wednesday: February 18, 2015 and is designed so that everyone in your community can participate. Everyone is busy. Time is at a premium. It is hard for all to come together to deepen our faith.

Each theme is introduced with a video of a Brother priming us for the week’s theme. The theme is then explored in depth in six short reflection videos (around 2 minutes each). A compilation video is also available each Sunday.

Each reflection video ends with a thought-provoking question for you to ponder over the course of the day, then answer on the worksheet.
